Course Description

AS Level Physics Why should I study AS Level Physics? Physics is a wide and diverse field of expertise. On this course you will study physical phenomena, encompassing centuries of research. Topics range from traditional studies in electricity to developing field such as particle physics, satellite and fibre-optic communication. On completion of the course, learners can progress to study A2 Physics to study other academic and practical courses including engineering What will be studied on the course? Unit 1 This unit contains basic electricity work, circuit theory, resistivity and conduction mechanisms. It also includes more modern physics including the study of the classification of particles and a brief look at wave - particle duality. Unit 2 This unit contains mechanics topics including scales and vector quantities forces, motion, friction, projectiles and investigation of the built properties of solids. It also includes waived topics such as reflection, refraction, diffraction and interference. Unit 3 This is a practical based unit. When does the course start and how long does it last? This course starts in September and lasts for one academic year ending in June. What qualifications are needed to do the course?
