Unit 3: How do fields explain motion and electricity?

This unit focuses on fields and motion. Practical activities should not be limited to assessment tasks; they may be used to introduce a physics concept, to build understanding of a physics concept or skill and to practise specific scientific skills, for example, application of Newton's laws of motion to circular and projectile motion, calculations related to experimental data involving relationships between force, energy and mass, analysis of e​lectric, magnetic and gravitational fields, and calculations related to the generation and transmission of electricity.

Area of Study 1: How do things move without contact?

Area of Study 2: How are fields used to move electrical energy?

Area of Study 3: How fast can things go?
