The Basic Equipment needed for GCSE Physics

These are my recommendations for the equipment you should bring to every lesson:

  • Black pens, coloured pens, scientific calculator, pencil, ruler, protractor and set square

Using a Protractor to Measure Angles

Using a protractor to measure angles is a skill that you will develop during your GCSEs.

Using a Set Square

You probably have one of these in your pencil case. This is how it can be used:

  • It can be used to check that rulers are vertical

  • Two of them can be used to measure the diameter of round objects
