Who's it for?
This chapter of our High School Physics Tutoring Solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about electricity and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:
- Struggle with understanding static electric fields, capacitors, resistors or any other electricity lab topic
- Have limited time for studying
- Want a cost effective way to supplement their physics learning
- Prefer learning physics visually
- Find themselves failing or close to failing their electricity lab unit
- Cope with ADD or ADHD
- Want to get ahead in physics
- Don't have access to their physics teacher outside of class
Why it works:
- Engaging Tutors: We make learning electricity lab experiments simple and fun.
- Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
- Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live physics tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
- Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about electricity lab experiments on the go!
- Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.
- Review how moving charges effect a static electric field.
- Learn how capacitors charge and discharge.
- Observe changes in electric current that passes through a resistor.
- See how moving charges are affected by magnetic fields.
- Get information about photoelectrons.
- Build and study series and parallel circuits.
1. Electrical Energy Storage of Capacitors: Physics Lab
After completing this lab, you will be able to explain what capacitors are, how they work, and how they are used in a circuit. A short quiz will follow.
2. Change in Electric Current: Physics Lab
After completing this lab, you will be able to explain what electric current is, and how it is affected by resistors in a circuit. You can also take a short quiz to test your knowledge.
3. Building Series & Parallel Circuits: Physics Lab
After completing this lab, you will be able to explain the difference between series and parallel circuits, and describe how the voltage and current vary across them. A short quiz will follow.
4. The Effect of a Magnetic Field on Moving Charges: Physics Lab
After completing this lab, you will be able to explain the effect of a magnetic field on moving charges, and demonstrate it using circuits and magnets. A short quiz will follow.
5. The Photoelectric Effect: Physics Lab
After watching this lesson, you will be able to explain what the photoelectric effect experiment is, what the results were, and what this tells us about light in terms of wave-particle duality. A short quiz will follow.
