2016 Holiday Classes: Sec 3 Pure Physics Headstart for 2017

10 Nov

In this section, we begin by examining kinematics, which is a study of motion without regard for the cause. After which, we study the conditions required for an object to be accelerated and introduce the concept of forces through Newton’s Laws. Subsequently, concepts of moments are introduced as consequences of a force. Finally, this section rounds up by leading the discussion from force to work and energy, and the use of the principle of conservation of energy to explain interactions between bodies.


  • Speed, velocity and acceleration
  • Graphical analysis of motion
  • Free-fall
  • Effect of air resistance


  • Balanced and unbalanced forces
  • Free-body diagram
  • Friction

Turning Effect of Forces

  • Moments
  • Centre of gravity
  • Stability

Energy, Work and Power

  • Energy conversion and conservation
  • Work
  • Power

S3 Physics Head Start (15 yr)

Dates/Day: 29-Nov-16 to  01-Dec-16, Tuesday to Thursday

Time: 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm

Dates/Day: 06-Dec-16 to 08-Dec-16, Tuesday to Thursday
