Revision – AP2 Week in Science!
This term, year 9 have been working hard in physics to discover why some materials are more difficult to heat up than others. They have also been finding out why snow melts at different rates on different surfaces! In the examples below, 9S3 have been showing adaptability by combining their scientific and mathematical skills, using a new equation to calculate specific heat capacities.
