Curriculum support20 minsFREE

Describe how to calculate the power of an appliance, and what is needed to do this.
Jamie JohnsonHost: Jamie (BSc (Hons), MSc, PGCE) is a Science teacher who is passionate about breaking down complex topics into digestible bites for students.

Every time we apply a force to move an object, or we experience a force on ourselves, energy is transferred, and work is done. In this class, students will focus on these key ideas of what happens when a force makes something move, and how we can classify appliances or scenarios as more or less powerful based on the rate of energy transferred. This class is great for all students but is especially helpful for physics students in Years 10 - 11 who want to feel confident on the topic.
