## 30 JulWhat do you need to know about Electric Charge and Field?

a
There are only four fundamental forces in physics, and in high school physics we will learn about three of them.  These forces are called “fundamental” because we don’t have a deeper explanation for why they exist.  The four are

Gravitational Force
Electric Force

For secondary school and JC students, mugging the examination syllabus can sometimes feel like an uphill battle; it may be tough, but it’s definitely not impossible. Subjects like Physics and Mathematics tend to get super convoluted...

## 02 JulWhat do you need to know about Forces & Newton’s Laws of Motion?

a

A force is just a push or a pull
There are lots of ways to push or pull:

Gravity pulls objects down toward the ground.  We call that force the weight of the object.

A string or rope can pull on an object.

Springs can...

## 01 JulWhat do you need to know about Free-fall, Projectile Motion, Air Resistance, and Terminal Velocity?

a

Free-fall:  a special case of uniformly accelerated motion
a
When you drop a hammer, it falls to the ground.  While it is falling, the only force acting on it is gravity. (There’s also a little bit of air resistance, but for a hammer moving at...

## 28 JunWhat do you need to know about Measurement & Uncertainty.

Yes we know. Fascinating and intriguing may not be the first descriptors that come to mind at the very mention of this topic. In fact, and also very unfortunately, it has been a sufferer of chronic neglect by generations and generations of students (and even teachers) 🙁

Mundane...

## 25 JunWhat do you need to know about Kinematics?

Defining Velocity
Velocity is the rate of change of position.
If you go in a straight line from A to B, your velocity is just the distance between A and B divided by the time it took to go from A to B.
e.g. If...

## 06 MarInterview with Asiaone and Vulcan Post.

On The Golden Girls, there’s a scene where a teacher speaks fondly about her favourite student: “He gets this look in his eyes when he’s listening. You don’t see that very often. I think that look is the whole reason that teachers teach.”
