In Physics, work done on an object is energy transferred. The rate that energy transfers is known as power. In this short session, students will learn that energy can only be transferred, not created or destroyed as well as the names for different types of energy. Students will also be given the chance to practice the equations in exam style questions. This class is great for students in Years 9 - 11 who want to feel more confident in the topic and get the chance to practise so that they excel in future exams.
