## Event Information

This workshop is designed for new teachers of A Level Physics or technicians supporting such courses.

It will give you the opportunity to complete the following recommended endorsement practicals and discuss how they would approach them with their students

• Determine the acceleration of a freely-falling object in air and a liquid

• Determine the electrical resistivity of a material

• Determine the e.m.f. and internal resistance of an electrical cell

• Determine the Young modulus of a material

• Determination of the wavelength of light and sound by two source superposition with a double-slit and diffraction grating

• Determine the speed of sound in air using a 2-beam oscilloscope, signal generator, speaker and microphone.

• Investigate the effects of length, tension and mass per unit length on the frequency of a vibrating string or wire.

• Use an oscilloscope or data logger to display and analyse the potential difference (p.d.) across a capacitor as it charges and discharges through a resistor.

• Calibrate a thermistor in a potential divider circuit as a thermostat

• Investigate the relationship between the force exerted on an object and its change of momentum

• Determine the specific latent heat of a phase change and the specific heat capacity of a material

• Investigation of Boyles Law (constant temperature) and Charles’s (constant pressure) law for a gas
