1 Measurement and uncertainties

Physics is all about deriving relationships between quantities so that we are able to make predictions. To derive relationships, we need to be able to measure the size of the quantities.A large ball of...

2.1 Distance, displacement, speed and velocity

If you look up distance in a dictionary you will find it has many different meanings. It's the same for displacement. In physics, words mean one thing and one thing only; the meaning is specified clearly...

Activity: Measurement and uncertainty

In this activity on Measurements and Uncertainties, you will be introduced to measuring with a Vernier caliper, estimate uncertainty, practise the (max - min)/2 method, distinguish random and systematic...

Activity: Displacement and velocity

In this activity on Distance and Displacement, you will be introduced to these quantities as well as velocity and acceleration. You will measure these (in the real world or on screen), understand the...
