This is the student instructions including a diagram, physics theory and questions. It is expected students will complete the following practice Physics internal assessment A.S. 2.1 at home using spaghetti from home or given by their classroom teacher. Access to the full model report can also be found on this site.
This video runs through the practical aspect of the Pole Vaulter A.S. 2.1 Physics internal assessment. This practical can be done with a variety of pasta and by using the theoretical equation, the radius of the pasta can be determined. Model height (h) vs distance (d):
This is a good introductory worksheet to get students used to drawing linear graphs and determining the Physical quantity from a graph. This worksheet includes 3 questions and model graphs and answers.
This is a great worksheet for an introduction into graphing and determining the physical quantity from a linear graph. It includes brief notes on drawing graphs and includes a graph paper grid to draw the graph. Pages 1 and 2 can be shrunk to fit onto a single A4 sheet. Answers included.
These notes cover all of the main types of errors which can be present in Physics experiments. They use the mnemonic SCRAPZ which stands for: S – Scale selection error C – Calibration error R – Repeating and averaging A – Approximate theory P – Parallax error Z – Zero error
