Physics

Physics is defined as the science of matter and energy, and the interactions between the two. Physics can be applied to a variety of areas including mechanics, thermodynamics, and nuclear science. Physics consists of many laws and theories that must be memorized and understood. Understanding the basic concepts of physics can help students to understand when and how to apply these concepts both on tests and in the real world.

Test Trade offers students a selection of four practice tests and a study guide. The study guide covers both physics and chemistry. Students can use one or both parts of the study guide. The physics part of the study guide covers topics including fundamental quantities, scientific notation, kinematics, vectors and nonlinear motion, circular motion, trajectories, relative motion, dynamics, Newton's laws, types of forces, momentum, work and energy, rotation and equilibrium, fluids, Archimedes' principle, Pascal's principle, Bernoulli's principle, Poiseuille's equation, vibration and waves, electrostatics, magnetism, behavior of light, relativity, quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, and cosmology. Students can use this study guide as a quick pre-test review, or as a study guide to help them understand what topics they need to understand in more depth.

The practice tests allow students to familiarize themselves with the style of test that is common in physics. Students can also use the practice test to identify the areas in which they need greater understanding before the actual test. The practice tests employ a variety of test formats. Some use multiple-choice questions and true-false scenarios, while others require fill-in-the-blank responses or short explanatory statements. These various test formats provide students with a good idea of the types of questions they will face on a real physics test. Students can take each test to assess their current knowledge or they can use the practice tests as a guide to direct them when studying.
