NEW SPACE TEST DATE!

POSTPONED UNTIL FRIDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER.

2 LESSONS OF REVISION REQUIRED BEFORE THEN

A possible date for the Space Test Friday 6th September, but it depends on the content.

I don’t want to cover the energy section until we do with the Dynamics Section.

Learn these Experiment

Thanks to S Gray, Drummond Community High School,  for putting together this book of experiments that you should have covered in your N5 Physics lessons. Any of these could be discussed in your exam as a question.

SPACE

Mrs Physics and Ms Horn are working on the last unit for the N5 course- the new Space Topic.
There have been several changes from the previous outcomes. This ought to be the most up to date work.



You can read about some of the risks of human spaceflight in the infographic below.

Infographic: Some of the most harrowing space disasters that have occurred.

Here are a few links and documents. Hope you can get access to them.

Revision Questions

Thanks to those in North Ayrshire who provided these excellent questions for you to get your teeth into. I’ll post the answers as password protected to protect those students and staff who are given these for homework! They’re in the old order, so you’ll have to search through for the right section.

ENJOY!

I’ll add to this during the week as I have time

If you are doing a PROPERTIES OF MATTER TEST

Look over some OLD Higher papers for the Pressure and Gas Laws as well as the relevant past papers above. I’ll look out the papers with question numbers as soon as I can.

If you’re doing the Waves and Radiation UASP I’ll get some revision plans up soon

Homework N5 Starters

This homework is a great introduction to the N5 Assignment, which is worth 20% of your exam.

National 5 PHYSICS Assignment starters

Answer the following Questions from the Understanding Standards website

https://www.understandingstandards.org.uk/Subjects/Physics

It is important that you spend an adequate time on this homework (an hour is advised). If you complete this thoroughly you ought to have a good grasp of what is required for the Assignment at National 5.

  1. List the twelve experiments that have been given as examples for the N5 Physics Assignment.
  2. In the marking instructions for the assignment how many marks are available for the underlying Physics?
  3. What are the six sections in the data collection and handling (and I don’t want 4a, 4b, 4c and 4d! BTW it isn’t even section 4)
  4. Section 3e and 3f refer to literature and sources. How do you achieve these marks?
  5. What are the marks awarded for when plotting your graph?
  6. What must your conclusion be related to, to achieve the mark?
  7. For candidate 1, how many repeats of the experiment did they make?
  8. What did candidate 1 do correctly for the graph and what was incorrect?
  9. Mark Candidate 2’s evidence thoroughly yourself using the marking scheme and compare your answer to the commentary. Record your results and the comparison. Comment on both of these.
  10. CHOOSE a topic that would be suitable using the Physics Compendium https://mrsphysics.co.uk/n5/ Research some Underlying Physics and find a suitable graph that you can try to replicate.
