GRADE TWELVE PHYSICS SPH 4U(G) MR. MOORS PICK UP A TEXTBOOK and CD TEXTBOOK - $80 CD - $10 Rodney.Moors@ocdsb.ca Physics is the original science that studies the physical world. It used to be known as natural philosophy. Today it is mostly concerned with the behaviour and structure of matter. The study of physics often leads to mathematical relationships. These relation- ships are useful because they describe the nature of matter and they allow the accurate prediction of future events. PHYSICS IS MATHEMATICAL. PHYSICS CAN BE ABSTRACT, YOU MUST THINK. PHYSICS DEMANDS HARD WORK. SAY THE F-WORD OR ABOVE?????? (I decide what is above or below, e.g. the s- word is below) THREE CHOICES 1. DO TEN PUSH-UPS 2. DO TWENTY CRUNCHES 3. SING I’M A LITTLE TEAPOT (with proper actions) IN FRONT OF CLASS (this could also be foisted upon you in the halls!!) SORRY BUT THERE IS NO FOOD OR DRINK IN THIS SCIENCE CLASSROOM. SPH 4U(G) IS ONLINE!! All notes, assignments, labs, test dates, assignment dates etc. can be found at: moorsscience.wikispaces.com Bell High School Course Information This final high school physics course reviews and extends the concepts of physics learned in Grade 12, kinematics, dynamics, energy, light, and electricity. The course is primarily intended for university or college bound students who are considering further studies in any science program or related area. Unit One – Kinematics Proportionality Statements, Motion in Two Dimensions Unit Two - Dynamics Newton’s Laws of Motion, Forces in Two Dimensions, Frictional Forces, Centripetal Force Unit Three - Energy Work, Kinetic Energy, Potential Energy, Conservation of Energy Unit Four – Momentum Momentum, Impulse, Conservation of Momentum Unit Five - Waves and Light Diffraction, Interference, The Wave Model of Light, Young’s Double Slit Experiment, Polarization, Single Slit Diffraction, Diffraction Gratings Unit Six - Electrostatics Electric Forces, Electric Fields, Electric Potential, Motion of Charged Particles in Electric Fields.
