What equations do I need to know for the Edexcel IGCSE physics exam for the Energy Resources and Energy Transfers topic?

In the list below the equations are grouped into the ones that need learning for IGCSE Edexcel double award (4SD0) and Physics only specification (8463). The bold type equations are Paper 2 only. Some of the equations do not need to be learnt but will be given on an insert in the paper. These equations […]

What equations do I need to know for the Edexcel IGCSE physics exam for the Astrophysics topic?

In the list below the equations are grouped into the ones that need learning for IGCSE Edexcel double award (4SD0) and Physics only specification (8463). The bold type equations are Paper 2 only. This topic does not require the memorization of any equations and all the equations will be given in the exam. These equations are at […]

What equations do I need to know for the Edexcel IGCSE physics exam for the Solids, Liquids or Gases topic?

In the list below the equations are grouped into the ones that need learning for IGCSE Edexcel double award (4SD0) and Physics only specification (8463). There are no equations in this topic that are paper 2 only so all students of IGCSE Edexcel Physics need to memorize or be able to use all the equations. […]

How do I learn the equations for the Electricity topic in GCSE or IGCSE Physics exams?

What equations do I need to know for the electricity topic in GCSE or IGCSE Physics exams and how do I learn them? It depends which specification that you are doing but most of the specifications such as AQA, OCR, Edexcel, CIE and Eduqas require memorization or being familiar with the following equations. This list […]

Are there any nice analogies of spin to explain it to A level physics students?

Diagram below has a really nice analogy of integer spin 1,2 and half spin 1/2. It’s a shame any A level physics syllabus ( to my knowledge) doesn’t really seem to explore Quantum numbers except the Principal Quantum number in any level of detail. Quantum physics almost always captures the imagination of 6th formers. Read […]
