AS level topics / refresher IGCSE that you are expected to know for A level. 1) Uncertainty Calculating Absolute uncertainty and percentage uncertainty for measurements. Determining uncertainty of analog and digital equipment. Plotting Error bard in one axis (y or x axis). Determine the uncertainty in gradient and Y intercept. – Graph uncertainty 2) Resolving Vectors Resolving vectors into its horizontal component and vertical components including when the forces are at an angle. 3) Simple Harmonic motion Calculating time period of mass spring and simple pendulum. Energy variations of a simple pendulum and mass-spring system. 4) Graph – Gradient, Best fit line Determining gradient from velocity-time graph, acceleration-time graph and force -extension graph. 5) Magnets and Electromagnets Explain what happens when current carrying conductor placed in a magnetic field. Explain electromagnetic induction and describe the ways of increasing the strength of induced emf. Left hand rule, motor effect, generator effect, magnetic flux density. 6) Radioactivity Determine half life from the activity-time graph or count-rate time graph. Determine decay constant and half life from A = A0e–λt.
