PHYSICS

FIRST TERM PHYSICS FOR SS1

This week is for revision of J.S.S. work. Revision and examination comes up by eleventh and twelfth weeks.

DETAILED WORK

WEEKS 2 & 3 : FUNDAMENTAL AND DERIVED QUANTITIES AND DIMENSION.

Students should be involved in the theoretical and practical works.

Areas of concentration:
1. Fundamental quantities: mass, length, time and electric charge.
2. Fundamental units Kg, m, etc.
3. Derived quantities: force, speed, etc. Derived units: MS, M³, M², etc and their dimensions.

WEEK 4: UNITS OF MEASUREMENTS.

Identification of units used in industry.

WEEK 5: TIME

Concepts and ways of measuring time.

WEEKS 6, 7, & 8: MOTION.

Types of motion — Random translation, oscillatory and relative motion. Areas of emphasis should include:
1. Listing most of the motions in a given environment and classifying a list of familiar motions into random, rotational, oscillatory and translational motion.
2. Identifying the forces that cause a given body to move and a force resisting the motion between two surface in contact and moving relative to each other.
3. Identification of circular motion and friction reduction in a given situation.
4. Concept of speed and velocity, Distance: time graph or displacement time graph.

WEEK 9: RECTILINEAR ACCELERATION.

1. Concept of acceleration and uniformed/non uniform acceleration.
2. Velocity, time graph and analysis of rectilinear motion
3. Deducing the speed of motion from the gradient or slope of the graph.

WEEK 10: SCALAR AND VECTORS.

1. Concept of scalar and vectors.
2. Explanation of the concept of uniform motion and determining acceleration from a velocity time graph.
3. Distinction between scalar and vectors.
