Read some of our most frequently asked questions and answers

How can I best revise for electricity and circuits in GCSE Physics?

Create circuit diagrams and practise solving problems related to Ohm's Law (V=IR). Use flashcards with circuit symbols on one side and their meanings on the other. For example, draw a series circuit with resistors labelled R1, R2, and R3 and practise calculating the total resistance and current.

What's an effective way to understand and remember the different types of energy, such as kinetic, potential, and thermal energy?

Create a mind map with these types of energy as main branches and sub-branches detailing their definitions and examples. For kinetic energy, include examples like a moving car or a swinging pendulum.

How can I prepare for questions on forces, including calculating resultant forces and pressure?

Practice drawing free-body diagrams for objects with multiple forces acting on them. For pressure, create flashcards with the formula (Pressure = Force/Area) and practise solving problems involving pressure, like calculating the pressure of an object on a table.

What study techniques are effective for revising the particle model of matter and the states of matter?

Use visualisation techniques to understand particle behaviour in solids, liquids, and gases. Create flashcards with terms like "evaporation," "sublimation," and "melting" on one side and their definitions and examples on the other.
