Topics for 2009 A Level H2 Physics

November 19, 2009Wei Jie 2 Comments »

Here are the topics which have appeared in the 2009 H2 Physics Paper 2.

1 Measurement (vectors)
Kinematics (velocity, acceleration)
Motion in a Circle (centripetal force)
2 Kinematics (projectile motion)
Dynamics (impulse, collision)
3 Forces (moments, equilibrium, CG)
4 Superposition (diffraction grating)
5 Electric Fields (force, force-distance graph)
6 Electromagnetic Induction (flux linkage, Faraday’s Law)
7 Thermal Physics (gases, Ideal Gas Equation)
Measurement (linearization of graphs)

Arranged by topic,

No Topic Question in P2
1 Measurement 1, 7
2 Kinematics 1, 2
3 Dynamics 2
4 Forces 3
5 Work, Energy and Power
6 Motion in a Circle 1
7 Gravitational Field
8 Oscillations
9 Thermal Physics 7
10 Wave Motion
11 Superposition 4
12 Electric Fields 5
13 Current of Electricity
14 D.C. Circuits
15 Electromagnetism
16 Electromagnetic Induction 6
17 Alternating Currents
18 Quantum Physics
19 Lasers and Semiconductors
20 Nuclear Physics

Finally, the list of topics for Paper 3:

No Topic Remarks
5 Work, Energy and Power May be combined with Forces
7 Gravitational Field
8 Oscillations
10 Wave Motion
13 Current of Electricity
14 D.C. Circuits May be combined with Current of Electricity
15 Electromagnetism
17 Alternating Currents May be combined with Current of Electricity
18 Quantum Physics
19 Lasers and Semiconductors
20 Nuclear Physics

However, as you know, just like the randomness of radioactive decay, SEAB and Cambridge may sabo students by repeating topics which have already appeared. Taking 1 as the least likely…

No Topic Likely to Appear? Remarks Not Tested
1 Measurement 1 Units, Errors and Uncertainties
2 Kinematics 2
3 Dynamics 2 May be combined with Forces and Work, Energy and Power Laws of Motion
4 Forces 4 May be combined with Dynamics and Work, Energy and Power Hooke’s Law, Fluid statics
6 Motion in a Circle 3 May be combined with Forces and Work, Energy and Power Angular quantities
9 Thermal Physics 2 Specific heat capacity, specific latent heat
11 Superposition 1 Stationary waves, air columns
12 Electric Fields 2
16 Electromagnetic Induction 1 Applications

All the best for the rest of your papers!
