Physics A-Level *Fees payable* at Brentwood School

Course description

AS Level
The OCR B - Advancing Physics course is rooted in using physics to explain the phenomenon in the world around us: how can light be both a wave and a particle? Why do we actually see upside down? The course covers optics, electricity, materials, forces, energy, motion, waves and quantum effects.

A2 Level
Pupils start to use physics to answer more challenging questions: what are protons made of? Why is the force of gravity at the centre of the Earth zero? How old is the universe? The study of fields (gravitational, electrical and magnetic) is combined with the study of matter; looking at the fundamental particles that make up atoms and how all matter is affected by temperature.
