GCSE Physics Worksheet: Elastic Potential Energy, definition, formula, Q&A

GCSE Physics Worksheet: Elastic Potential Energy, definition, formula, Q&A

This format of worksheet is used for all my GCSE Physics formula based resources. They were created and then honed on weaker pupils who find it challenging to apply mathematics in Physics. The familiar format used for each topic with formulae puts the pupils at ease and they feel comfortable in using new formula in this way. The completed sheet is also included for the teachers reference.

OCR A Level Physics - Unit 6.1: Capacitors and Capacitance

OCR A Level Physics - Unit 6.1: Capacitors and Capacitance

The 3 resources that are a part of this bundle cover all of the specification points for the OCR A Level specification for Unit 6.1 - Capacitors and Capacitance. In total, the lessons should cover about 10-12 hours of teaching time (slightly more if you include the practical sessions),and depending on the ability of your students. Each of the resources are differentiated, and include answers to all of the questions.

Capacitors and Energy Storage

Capacitors and Energy Storage

This is a differentiated resource aimed at teachers and tutors that are delivering the OCR A Level Physics course. This lesson covers Unit 6: Capacitors and Energy Storage. Throughout the resource, there are a number of examples and AfL points to makes sure that students are moving along with the new ideas, with answers provided for all questions. There are also some worked examples to show students how to get to answers. The learning objectives and the associated links to the OCR A Level Physics A (H556) Specificaition covered through this resource are: Describe how we use the energy stored in a capacitor 6.1.2(c) Explain how to find the equations for energy stored on a capacitor 6.1.2(a)/6.1.2(b) [M3.8] Link equations together from the capacitors topic to answer more complex questions 6.1.2(b) NB: These specification links are correct at the point of uploading (22/08/17) and will be monitored for updates. The resources included are intended to be used in the following manner: - L3 Capacitors and Energy Storage.pptx (24 slides) This is the teaching resource and designed to be used as the front of classroom resource. This includes answers for student marking opportunities. Make sure that you go through the resource to see how the animations fit in with each of the slides. This resource is intended to last over 1-2 hours of teaching. - L2 Discharging a Capacitor Consolidated.pptx (17 slides) This resource is designed to be printed and provided to students as a students handout. All answers have been removed, and key pieces of informtion remain as to be a revision support. This does not have to be used. All resources are ready to use to teach, but can be adapted to fit other exam boards, specifications and order of teaching. Enjoy!

Discharging a Capacitor

Discharging a Capacitor

This is a differentiated resource aimed at teachers and tutors that are delivering the OCR A Level Physics course. This lesson covers Unit 6: Discharging a Capacitor. Throughout the resource, there are a number of examples and AfL points to makes sure that students are moving along with the new ideas, with answers provided for all questions. There are also some worked examples to show students how to get to answers, and instructions for students to complete PAG 9 - Activity 2 with sample data. The learning objectives and the associated links to the OCR A Level Physics A (H556) Specificaition covered through this resource are: Describe the nature of exponential decay for a capacitor and what affects it 6.1.1(b)/6.1.3(a)(i) Explain how to use the decay equations to solve numerical problems 6.1.3(c) [M0.5, M2.5, M3.10, M3.12] Link your results to find the time constant for a capacitor 6.1.3(b)/6.1.3(c)/6.1.3(d)/6.1.3(e) [M3.9, M3.11) NB: These specification links are correct at the point of uploading (22/08/17) and will be monitored for updates. The resources included are intended to be used in the following manner: - L2 Discharging a Capacitor.pptx (33 slides) This is the teaching resource and designed to be used as the front of classroom resource. This includes answers for student marking opportunities. Make sure that you go through the resource to see how the animations fit in with each of the slides. This resource is intended to last over 2-3 (4-5 including the practical) hours of teaching. - L2 Discharging a Capacitor Consolidated.pptx (22 slides) This resource is designed to be printed and provided to students as a students handout. All answers have been removed, and key pieces of informtion remain as to be a revision support. This does not have to be used. All resources are ready to use to teach, but can be adapted to fit other exam boards, specifications and order of teaching. Enjoy!
