Make Friends With Physics

Most students think that physics is such a difficult subject that some of them would rather avoid than try to master it. However, regardless you like or not, you have to stick with it, passing the exam to continue the next semester. Thus we want to help you solve your problem dealing with physics.

Firstly, it is very important that you always pay attention to the teacher and the explanation during the class. Even though you don’t like this subject, don’t put the class aside, thinking that you can study it at home with ease by only reading the theories on the textbooks. As you know that physics is rather difficult to understand, just hand it to the lecturer or teacher as the expert to give you the explanation.

Don’t try to memorize things your lecturers say or you read from textbooks. Instead, understand the logic and how something works or happens. Try to really understand the matter, especially during the experiment activities.

Another thing you can do is to make a study group. It is better for you to form it in early in the semester that it will be easy when you deal with lab activities which involve partner(s). Arrange the schedule, including the place and time for regular meeting. Studying with group is beneficial. If you have any difficulties, you can share with your friends. They probably have the answers and give you clear explanation.

Also, studying physics in group force you to study the matter more seriously as you have to share your knowledge with the other members. You don’t want to be the only one who is passive in the group, always listening to your friends’ explanation, do you? In this case, you can practice teaching physics, especially to those who don’t understand the matter.

Now when it comes to the exam, you might be confused by the initial sentences within the questions that will make you desperate before you start answering them. Thus we would like to suggest you to read all the exam questions. Do the easiest first. Try to read each question completely and digest them slowly, but precisely.

One more thing, don’t look at the clock while you are doing the last problems as you can get nervous for running out time that you may fail to answer the questions. Those are tips to be successful in physics exam. We hope that it is useful for you.

Talking about physics, you are probably interested in any discussions on ray spectrum and any devices dealing with this subject. Thus you can read other articles of Lucien Lester on FTIR spectrophotometer and raman spectrometers. Within those articles you can also find reviews on such spectrometers which you can take into consideration before you purchase one.

Tips to Make Your Children Like Physics

Physics seems to be such a difficult subject that many students avoid. The only way to master this subject is to be accustomed to it. As parents, you can introduce Physics to your children as early as possible. Here we have some tips to make your kids love Physics.

Remember that physics needs experiments for better understanding. Therefore, the first thing you have to do is to make your children accustomed to such experiments. Make them intrigued to ask how something can happen. Just find simple experiments, but attractive.

There are typical children who are so reluctant to study, even to hear any words dealing with studying. Hence, when you ask your children to get involved in those experiments, avoid the terms of studying. Create the atmosphere as if you were playing with them. They will be more relaxed that they don’t realize that they are actually studying Physics.

Speaking on simple experiments, you can practice to make a volcano with your children. You only need to prepare sand, a used bottle of mineral water, vinegar, two-spoon baking soda, food coloring (choose red one to give a sense of lava), and a tray.

Firstly, put the baking soda and food coloring into the bottle. Then place the bottle on the tray with freestanding position. Cover the body of the bottle with the sand until it looks like a volcano. Remember not to cover the mouth of the bottle with the stand. Pour the vinegar into the bottle and you will see an explosion of a volcano with the red lava. You can search another simple experiment in the internet. After the experiments, try to explain how it can happen.

Then it is important to give your children a chance to practice another Physics concept they might find. Help them with when they have difficulties. Also, you have to pay attention to their mood. If you see that they seemingly get bored, you can play a game with them. Or, you might make a quiz. To motivate them to answer your questions, prepare some rewards, like chocolate or candies, or anything they like. Give them those rewards when they have the correct answer.

These activities demand parents to be more active. Nevertheless, while you are teaching your children, you get the benefits. You are actually studying that you can improve your knowledge.

Talking about Physics, you are probably interested in any discussions on ray spectrum and any devices dealing with this subject. Thus you can read other articles of Lucien Lester on vibrational spectroscopy and raman spectrometer. Within those articles you can also find reviews on such spectrometers which you can take into consideration before you purchase one.
