Nuffield Physics: Questions Book I
In Nuffield Physics, constructive problems or questions that ask for active thinking largely took the place of pupils' reading in texts or background books. The purpose and nature of these questions was explained in chapter 1 of Nuffield Physics Tests and Examinations.
Section 1: Discovering the variety of things.
Section 2: Forces felt with fingers.
Section 3: Thinking about things packed together.
Section 4: Things that show orderly arrangement.
Section 5: Counting in powers of 10. Making rough guesses.
Section 6: Comparing the weights of things.
Section 7: Weighing things.
Section 8: Air and how to weigh it.
Section 9: Weighing with a micro-balance.
Section 10: Measuring things in metres.
Section 11: Guessing, estimating, measuring.
Section 12: Taking averages.
Section 13: Balancing things on see-saws.
Section 14: Stretching springs and wires.
Section 15: Force divided by area.
Section 16: Measuring atmospheric pressure. How deep is the ocean of air in which we live?
Section 17: Some consequences of living at the bottom of an air ocean.
Section 18: Particles in rapid random motion.
Section 19: More about molecules in motion.
Section 20: How small are atoms (or molecules)?
Section 21: Fuels, foodstuffs, and energy changes.
Section 22: Measuring energy transferred.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
