Vectors - Introduction

The Green Dot indicated items that must be handed in


Welcome to Physics 12!  If you're here you've probably did Phyiscs 11, have an interest in Physics, and might be preparing for University Physics.  So Let's just jump right in!


 Due:  April 6th

Do the Problem Set.

When you are ready, try the Self TEST...If you can do it without help you're in great shape.  Well Done!   Both Due:  April 6th

Magnets and Electromagetism (Force)

The Green Dot indicated items that must be handed in


Very important point:

Moving charged particles (or current) will create a magnetic field.

These moving charged particles will act like a magnet themselves and feel a force when they are near other Magnets. See videos 

Only first 1.5 minutes of next video

Short Good Example Videos:


 Due:  May 13th

Current running 

through a wire creates

a magnetic field that

attracts paper clips.

The Right Hand Rule is important when looking a the design of things like electric motors, speakers, and particle accelerators, we need to know the direction that things are being pushed and pulled!

Other Resources:

The Earth has a magnetic field that protects us from a constant bombardment of charged particles that move through space.

Moving charged particles feel a force from the earth's magnetic field and their path is diverted.

Universal Gravitation


Watch these and then try the Intro Assignment.

The Green Dot indicated items that must be handed in


  • Try the intro questions

  • You will need your formula sheet (for masses of planets and orbital distances)

  • Check your answers with a pal.

 Due:  April 15th

  • Electric Forces are one of few Fundamental forces in our universe.  You gotta know about them.  

  • Watch the videos.

  • Read the notes.

  • Try the Problems

Induction - Creating electricity with a magnet!


 Due:  May 20th

Important point!

If you move a a magnet near a wire you will create current in that wire!

This is called INDUCTION!


 Due:  May 22th

Finding direction of current flow in Set#2 is tricky.  Leave them for now if they are causing you trouble.
