Tom Duncan is firmly established as the leading author of physics textbooks for students preparing for GCSE or equivalent examinations throughout the world. This international edition has been designed to provide up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of the core and supplementary topics specified in the IGCSE physics syllabus. In particular:
wave theory is introduced and more details of a range of ultrasonic echo techniques such as medical ultrasound imaging are included
in motion, factors affecting stopping distance are analyzed in detail and current information on satellites has been provided
volume expansion in solids, liquids and gases are compared and the term thermal capacity is explained
the concept of electric fields and e.m.f. are introduced, as well as applications of potential divider circuits and the principles of ink-jet printers and magnetic recording
sources of background radiation hazards, nuclear stability and radioisotopes and their uses are reviewed
investigations which are suitable for connection to a datalogger and computer have been identified throughout the text
there is a section on experimental physics covering taking readings, recording results, systematic errors and conclusions with suggestions for practical activities
questions from recent IGCSE examination papers have been included.
