Physics A Level at Anthony Gell School

Course description

Physics is our attempt to understand how the Universe works. There are some deep, underlying laws that simplify this ambitious task. In the course you will develop the concepts and knowledge needed to understand these laws and apply them to solve a variety of problems. Practical work is a vital part of Physics; physicists apply their skills in a wide variety of contexts: from nuclear medicine in hospitals to satellite design. During AS and A - level Physics there will be six core practical tasks each year; these along with other practical work will give you the opportunity to learn, practise and demonstrate these skills. The course includes topics on Mechanics, Waves, Particles, Electricity, Gravitation, Electromagnetism, Thermodynamics and Radioactivity and Astrophysics.
