Students will learn about fields and interactions, effects of fields and the application of field concepts.

This unit is composed of three different modules that can be completed individually (approximately 4 hours each). The modules include:

Physics Unit 3 AOS 1: 1.1 - Fields and interactions

Students will use interactive activities including simulations, videos and apps, to investigate:  

  • Gravitation, magnetism and electricity using a field model                                               

  • A comparison between gravitational, magnetic and electric fields 

  • A comparison between the vector field model and magnetic phenomena   

  • Fields as static or changing, and as uniform or non-uniform. 

Physics Unit 3 AOS 1: 1.2 - Effects of fields

Students will use interactive activities including simulations, videos, and apps, to:   

  • Analyse the use of an electric field to accelerate a charge.   

  • Analyse the use of a magnetic field to change the path of a charged particle.  

  • Analyse the use of gravitational fields to accelerate a mass. 

Physics Unit 3 AOS 1: 1.3 - Application of field concepts

Students will use interactive activities including simulations, videos and apps, to:    

  • Apply the concepts of force due to gravity and normal reaction force                              

  • Model satellite motion as uniform circular orbital motion. 

  • Describe the interaction of two fields, allowing for electric charges, magnetic poles and current carrying conductors. 

  • Study the force on a current carrying conductor due to an external magnetic field.     

  • Study the operation of simple DC motors.  

  • Model the acceleration of particles in a particle accelerator.
