  1. Hello, I teach IB Physics and have uploaded close to 150 videos on Youtube with key concepts, past exam video solutions and IA tips. Here is an example playlist I hope you find it useful Would love to hear your feedback! Thanks!
  2. Hello, I teach IB Physics and just wanted to let you know about the latest videos I uploaded on Youtube in addition to over 100 other videos: Sub-topic 4.1 - Simple Harmonic Oscillations I hope that it is useful for you
  3. Hello, I have made and uploaded over a hundred IB Physics videos on Youtube and will be adding more during the coming weeks. Feel free to check them out here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGZ55FHT1TEHVh1grhOBReA I hope you find them useful
  4. Hello Ray, What sub-topics in thermal physics are you most interested in?
  5. Hi Everyone, I created a condensed version of the interactive IB Physics Revision Calendar for the November 2020 exams that I posted earlier and attaching it here. Feel free to have a look and share with friends if you find it useful Take care and stay safe! IB Physics November 2020 Exam Revision Calendar.pdf
  6. Hi OMG, I have been teaching IB Physics for years. You can definitely do your experiment at home. Here are a few short videos to help you choose a topic. The example I use in the videos is based on an experiment that can be done at home. Let me know if I can help in any other way Take care and all the best, Peter from the PaperPlainz Team
  7. Hello November 2020 IB Physics students! Our team at PaperPlainz.com created this calendar to help you save time and energy when getting ready for your IB Physics exams. The calendar is attached and here is a short Youtube video with helpful tips on how to maximise the use of this calendar. Enjoy Peter from the PaperPlainz Team November 2020 IB Physics Revision Calendar.pdf
  8. Hello, I am not sure where exactly your strengths and weaknesses lie, but I would probably get started with Maths and Physics. Maths, because there is a clear list of expected, prior knowledge that you should have before entering a course (just search IB Maths AA Guide and you will find a document with lots of details) and Physics, because even though there is no clear prior knowledge there, it is super-important to have a strong foundation in some of the basics (if you took IGCSE Physics and did well, you should be in a good shape). Once you covered the prior knowledge in Maths and revi
  9. Sure, happy to help This looks fine to me, the only thing to change would be to make sure your line passes through the origin (it is a bit off and it seems that your horizontal axis intercept is around 0.5). Take care and keep up the good Physics work!
  10. I see. Sometimes your line of best fit will not be a straight line and it is okay. In this case the line of best fit, as you wrote earlier, is a curve. When you draw it, just keep in mind the general guidelines for line of best fit: 1. Draw it so that it passes through the first and the last point. 2. It passes as close to the data points as possible. Does this help? If you would like to take a picture of your solution post it here, I will be happy to look at it. Take care and have a great day!
  11. Hello, I have a few ideas. Do you think you could post a screenshot of the question here? It will be easier to help that way.
  12. Hi Dom, since you are verifying an existing value (as I understand, you are aiming to confirm through a simulation-based experiment, the value of Wien's displacement constant), you would not formally state a research question (since you already know the value you should get). You can form a hypothesis, stating that based on the existing scientific context, you should get approximately 2.897771955...×10−3 m⋅K for this constant. Then you can carry out the experiment with the temperature as your independent and the wavelength as your dependent variable. A thought of caution though: this
  13. Hi Zia, 1. You can use a slow motion camera to figure out the terminal velocity. I would probably do it this way: 1. Film the falling filter in front of a measuring tape so that you can see on the footage the distance fallen by the filter. 2. On the footage, find the section where your filter is not accelerating any more. 3. Play the video for one second. The distance fallen during this time is basically your terminal velocity in m/s. 2. The height is one of your control variables, so keep it the same. 3. Your research question has the basics, I would probably add in a bit more
  14. Hello IB Physics Students, We are excited to share with you our newest addition: The complete, step-by-step, simple-to-use PaperPlainz IB Physics Internal Assessment Guide! To give you even more support with your IA work, we also launched the PaperPlainz Facebook IA Community where you can ask questions, clarify doubts and most importantly support each other during the IA process.
