6th Year Physics Grinds

Course Overview

The topics on the Physics course are as follows:

  • Light and Sound
  • Electricity
  • Heat
  • Mechanics
  • Modern Physics
  • Particle Physics (Options 1)

You do not have a high standard of Maths to succeed in Physics. You need to be competent at manipulating formulae and using your calculator. The course is quite long so you need to be very well organised in knowing definitions, demonstration experiments, proofs and real-life Physics applications. Kieran’s notes organise you so all you need to do is carry out the work as set out in the notes.

Recently exam papers have tended to have questions with mixed topics meaning omitting parts of the course is risky. For example, last year’s paper included a question on nuclear physics where students had to carry out a heat calculation. Therefore, it is essential that students try to cover most of the course. Leaving out major topics like Electricity is not an option.

Section A is an experimental section. Kieran provided students with a workbook allowing students to carry out a write-up of all the experiments.

All leaving cert questions relevant to a topic appear at the end of each set of notes. Full solutions to all questions in the notes are provided.

Kieran puts special emphasis on Modern Physics (electron and nucleus) and the Particle Physics option. There can be a great return in studying these topics as they often yield 50% of the Section B questions.
