Introduction to Year 12 Physics
Introduction to Year 12 Physics If there is no air between Earth and Mars what does the rocket push against to get to Mars? If almost all of the fuel is used to escape the Earths gravity, how can the rocket make all the way to Mars? How do they calculate the orbits around Earth and Mars? What keeps a satellite in orbit? What is weightlessness? How can they work out how much force is required to slow the capsule down in 7 minutes? What is 7g? What alternatives can be used to power a space craft?
Welcome to Stage 2 Physics Text Physics KEY IDEAS Parts 1 & 2 (3 rd edition)
Welcome to Stage 2 Physics Skills and Assessment Tasks 30% Investigations Folio40% Practical Investigations Issues Investigation External examination30%
Welcome to Stage 2 Physics You are expected to do about 4 hours of work in Physics per week in addition to programmed time.
Welcome to Stage 2 Physics 1 ½ hours -weekly assignment 1 ½ hours-studying and learning from texts and notes etc 1 hour- Information Search, practical preparation, essays etc This is a rough guide only.
