Practical Experiments

There are many opportunities to carry out practical work in GCSE Physics. Videos can never replace the real hands-on experience or excitement - but these videos will help you understand more about the practicals required for your course.

They also include blank results tables you can fill in or you can download a set of sample data to analyse.

This simple experiment, where a trolley is released from different heights on a ramp, is a great way to demonstrate the different types of variables (independent, dependent and control) as well as how the data can be analysed. These skills are important across all the GCSE Science subjects!
