This book aims to cover all the material needed to meet the physics components of the specifications of the Edexcel, AQA, WJEC and OCR (both 21st Century Science and Gateway) examination boards both for GCSE science and additional science. The content also covers the additional topics necessary for GCSE physics. It encourages learners to use a mind mapping approach to revision. Each page contains clear annotated illustrations that will help the reader to assimilate the facts quickly and commit them to memory. The book covers force and motion, energy and its transfer (including waves, electrical and thermal energy), electromagnetism and radioactivity. The latter part of the book applies these core concepts in a wide range of applications. To comply with the latest GCSE specifications, ‘How Science Works’ permeates all aspects of the book which also provides questions on all the topics covered, to test knowledge, develop understanding of the physical principles and enhance problem solving skills.
Electrical circuit symbols, Fundamental concepts, Forces and motion, Energy, Transfer of energy, Waves, Electrical energy, Magnet fields, Thermal energy, Applications of physics, The supply and use of electrical energy, Transport, Waves and communication, Radioactivity, Our place in the universe.
