Lockerbie Academy’s S2 Forces Unit Material, containing the Assessed Practical and details for plotting graphs in Excel.
Wow! This is an important Physics topic, your first topic in the S2 physics course. All the info you cover in class is given below. We will start at the beginning but can rush through the bits that you’ve covered in primary.
This sheet gives you details of what need to know for this block and for the test.
Here is the copy of the homework booklet, you can make a start on it whenever you’ve time and get ahead. Make sure you hand homework in on time.
S2 Physics Homework Tasks
Complete a title page called FORCES
In the back of your jotter write a piece “What I learned about myself in S1 Science” This is not the topics that you covered- I know those, but what did you learn about yourself, your ability to think for yourself, try tasks etc. What skills have you learned .
Hookes Law table & Hookes Law graph (this is an assessment piece)
Answering the mass and weight questions
1st June 2019
Revise the work you’ve completed this week and previous weeks
If you haven’t got results for the Hooke’s Law Assessment use the ones below. Copy the results into Excel, find the average extension using the formula =average(range) . Then plot a graph of Weight against average extension.
There is a separate post on EXCEL with details of how to create a table of results and plot a graph in Excel, which is useful for all students studying Physics, and other Sciences too- a useful life skill.
Mrs Physics is keen to get everyone using software to aid their Physics, so as part of the forces topic you will complete a Hooke’s Law experiment and write this up and use Excel to create your table and graph. The instructions are given in the booklets below. GLOW users and other users of Office 365 will be using the Excel 2016 version, but users of Office 2010 can use the booklets marked 2010.
If you missed the lesson and want to practice use this data here.
Mrs Physics is keen to get everyone using modern software, so as part of the forces topic you will complete a Hooke’s Law experiment and write this up like an old National 5 Outcome 1 and use Excel to create your table and graph. The instructions are given in the booklets below. GLOW users and other users of Office 365 will be using the Excel 2016 version, but users of Office 2010 can use the booklets marked 2010.
