Lightning is an electrical discharge from two areas with a large imbalance in charge. Thunder is a sonic shock wave that is caused by air being made to travel faster than the speed of sound. If you see lightning, then start to count it is possible to work out how far away the eye or […]Read More Why is there a time gap between lightning and thunder in an electrical storm?
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 […]Read More How do I learn the equations for the Electricity topic in GCSE or IGCSE Physics exams?
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 […]Read More Are there any nice analogies of spin to explain it to A level physics students?

‘Most of a typical galaxy is invisible. This elusive mass, known as dark matter, seems to be an indispensable ingredient for creating a galaxy — it’s the scaffolding that attracts normal matter — yet reveals itself only as an extra gravitational tug on gas and stars. ‘ Read more of this interesting article hereRead More 19 galaxies discovered with missing dark matter
