Y13 Electrical Systems 90523
This is an effort to summarise the Y12 electromagnetic foundations for the Y13 electricity course as well as outline the new Y13 material covering DC and AC capacitors and inductors. The notes are available in A4 pdf here.

Due in class on a Wednesday, one week after being set in class. Due
in class does not mean at the end of the day after school, it means at the start of the lesson. Practicals are a course pre-requisite for gaining credits in the 3.1 internal assessment.
3.1 Overview: 5 Credits of Pure Fun
This is the latest version of my summary, hints, and tips for 3.1. added 29/03/2013
Our latest plan for dealing with the error bars is
to just use the min and max values of our trials and use them to define the upper and lower values for the error bars. Note that any adjustment of the gradient (like in the pendulum experiment to find gravity) also needs to be done to the uncertainty, eg. if you multiply the gradient by two to get gravity your uncertainty value also needs to get the x2 treatment.
