Pearson BTEC New specification-Applied science-Unit 1-Displacement and phase difference-C1
Displacement and phase difference lesson created in accordance to the Pearsons BTEC national specification for applied science. This is the second lesson in the physics C1 working with waves topic. The new specification requires students to sit an externally assessed examination in January. Includes slide animations, practice questions with answers on slides, interactive review of the topic so far and homework (calculating wave speed) + MS.

NB: The features of a wave have been covered in the first lesson, this lesson focuses on displacement graphs, explains how rotating vectors generate sine waves and phase difference.

Relevant chapter: Principles and applications of science. Pearson Applied science (Student 1) textbook-Page 58-59

The following areas have been covered from the specification in this lesson.
C1 Working with waves
Understand the features common to all waves and use the following terms as applied to waves:

-Graphical representation of wave features.
-Understand concepts of displacement and phase difference.
