Secondary Physics Tutors & Secondary Physics Tuition

We are surrounded by physics all the time and whether we realise it or not, we use physics every day. Secondary physics lessons introduce children to a broader view of matter and energy and it has been said that studying physics helps develop critical thinking skills and problem-solving skills. Secondary physics tutors will cover topics such as: astronomy, electricity and magnetism, heat, energy, light and matter, electronics, sound waves and mechanics to help your child.

Learning secondary physics can often be difficult to understand. Helping your child grasp certain concepts can be difficult even for an adult. A private secondary physics tutor can make a world of difference to your child's science journey. First Tutors is the top site for matching parents to suitable secondary physics tutors and we are sure we can help you find the most suitable secondary physics tutor for your child.

Fun Secondary Physics Experiment - Static Electricity

A fun way to discover about positively and negatively charged particles using basic household items. Is it true that opposites attract?

Things you will need:

  • Two blown-up balloons with string attached
  • An aluminium can
  • Some woollen fabric
  • Your hair

What to do:

  • First rub the two balloons one-by-one against the woollen fabric.
  • Then try moving the balloons together. Are they attracted to each other?
  • Rub one of the balloons against your hair then slowly pull it away (do this in front of a mirror so you can see what happens).
  • Put the aluminium can on it's side on a table. Rub the balloon on your hair again then hold the balloon close to the can and watch as it rolls towards it. Slowly move the balloon away from the can and it will follow.

What you will see:

  • By rubbing the balloons against the woollen fabric you have created static electricity. This involves negatively charged particles (which are called electrons) jumping to positively charged objects.
  • When you rub the balloons against the fabric or your hair they become negatively charged, they have taken some of the electrons from the fabric or hair and left them positively charged.
  • It thus appears to be true when we say opposites attract. Your positively charges hair is attracted to the negatively charged balloon and will rise up to meet it.
  • This is also the case with the aluminium can which is drawn to the negatively charged balloon as the area near it becomes positively charged.
