Below are the resources for the HEAT topic that you’ll cover in S1 Physics. You might not be given all of the information by your teacher, but you can always use the additional materials to read around the subject, that’s what makes a successful learner, confident individual and responsible citizen.
Notes for the Heat Theory

The electromagnetic (em) spectrum is a collection of transverse waves that all travel at the same speed in air, the speed of light, 300 000 000 m/s. (equivalent to 7.5 times round the Earth every second)
One of the waves is VISIBLE
Others are RADIO & TV,
The others are INFRA-RED,
ULTRA VIOLET, X-RAYS, GAMMA WAVES.
The only difference between
each of these waves is their wavelength or frequency. They all fit the formula
Speed= frequency × wavelength
The order is important and to
remember it use the following rhyme!
Randy Radio & TV
Period, T, is the time for one wave to pass a point and is measured in seconds.
Frequency, f is the number of waves being produced or passing a point per second. Frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz)
Here are lots of resources for you to check and practice. My utmost apologies if I have not credited people for sending this material. As soon as I know who you are I will thank you personally.
A document on how to succeed in Science has highlighted the following skills and this is what you will be marked on during the HEAT block. Everyone starts with 3 points as an average and you can go down to 0 (not usual) and up to 5 points depending on your contribution. Some skills are so important they count twice in the score!
Over the coming months and years students will be given standardised assessments in P1, P4, P7 and S3. Currently the Literacy and Numeracy tests will be the first ones rolled out, with Science coming later. You can keep up to date by clicking on the link below.
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.
