Physic for A level & UTME

Simplifying physics for better understanding for students to excel in ‘A level’ and UTME

Notes on optics : light waves

Transmission of light Light can travel through a solid, liquid and gas or vacuum. Therefore, it does not need a maternal medium for its transmission. Types of object/substance 1          Opaque object: These are objects that do not allow light to pass through them, e. g wood, stone, table, wall, etc. …

Notes on basics electronics for UTME

Conductors are substances that allow the passage of electricity through them. Insulation is a substance that will not permit the passage of electricity through them. Insulators are material that do not allow the passage of electricity through them. Semi conductors are materials having intermediate electrical conductivity between that of conductors …

Notes on Surface Tension

The surface of the liquid behave lika a membrane under tension, surface tension arises because the molecules of the liquid exert attractive forces on each other. There is zero net force in a molecule inside the volume of the liquid, but a surface molecule is drawn into the volume. Thus, …
