Aims Understand how the energy of atoms can account for the energy lost du to friction and air resistance. Understand how internal energy is made up of KE and PE of atoms. Define a temperature scale. Understand the difference between temperature and internal energy. Define heat. Explain conduction convection and radiation. Internal energy (U) In the last section you considered...
This is a great resource for IB Physics teachers. I have been using it and will continue using the same in future. The resources of IA are great. I can strongly recommend to any Physics teacher of the world for this site. Thank you for maintaining the...
I am very pleased with the website and the material. Love the animated multiple choice test questions. That is a great way to ask questions and cannot be accomplished with questions on paper. Also, the labs are very good and the suggestions are very...
InThinking site for IB physics is a wonderful resource to learn and teach IB physics effectively. I have been trained mostly through Chris Hampers' ideas and innovations on this site. I couldn't have made it without this resource. Thank you for making...

SL/HL Core answersNice resource! I don't seem to be able to access the solutions to the electron energy levels test.

Renewable energyHi John; It comes from an equation that was on the old syllabus. BUt I guess the answer could be worked out by elimination. Speed gets less Energy doesn't increase density is constant must be amplitude

Renewable energyHi Chris, Where did Energy should be constant or if anything get less, the speed gets less. Power = ρvgA^2/2 in question two come from? I would guess its a change in gravitational potential energy? But then why is this A^2?

Measuring half life of beer foamHi Denis; Probably works best with Carlsberg but would be genius to try with Guiness, stay sHarp.

Measuring half life of beer foamUsed the video method outside Cairo: local Stella half life = 45s, and Sakara = 29s. Plus students loved it. A colleague suggested Guinness may have interesting bubbles so will try to source. Thanks for the method.

Specific heat capacity and latent heatHi Stephen; That's very strange. I have fixed this one but would take me for ever o find others. Thanks for reporting and please report if you find more. The fix is to remove the e from the URL.

Specific heat capacity and latent heatHi Chris. I have noticed a few features recently require editors access. the required practical on this page for specific heat for example?

Engineering PhysicsHi Lee; Oops, I should remove the under development title. I have taught the engineering option twice, in fact my present 2nd years had a choice of all options, some did engineering four did astro and two relativity. You can find a full set...

Engineering PhysicsHi Chris, It seems to me that you have not yet taught an option for the new syllabus. Does that you were not teaching the a group finishing with exam in June? Just wondering ^-^ I am hoping to teaching this Engineering option for my HL class...

OscillationsHi Sanjuktha; The way these quizzes is generated has changed so the questions are no longer in the same order, I will edit them so they make sense, sorry for the confusion.
