If you need help with Physics, you're in the right place. The Physics Boot Camp team has decades of experience of helping students of all abilities improve their GCSE science grades.
This course includes video lectures for every section, downloadable worksheets (with answers) for practice and a summary quiz for each section. Before you spend money on a private tutor, try our course - you can access the course when and where it suits you and the whole unit costs less than one session with a tutor!
This course covers the unit P2 - Physics for your Future, which is part of the Edexcel Additional Science or Physics A course. If this is not your exam board or course, then check out our instructor page for a suitable course for you.
this unit you will learn about why some materials are radioactive, the
properties of the three different types of radiation, their uses and
effects. You will learn how circuits work, how static electricity occurs
and the use of electricity in the home. You will learn how forces
affect motion, describing that motion and analysing the energy transfers
We use our expertise from helping thousands of students to highlight the key areas that you need for your exam, along with helping you avoid the mistakes that everyone else makes!

Understanding the movement of electrons is essential for getting to grips with electricity and that's what you'll learn about here. Static electricity also includes the best ever physics demonstration so make sure you check out the van der graaf generator videos in the resource section
There are two types of current, alternating and direct. Learn the differences in this session.
Why does electricity move around the circuit in the first place? This session will help you answer that and apply your knowledge to analyse circuits.
Describe what is happening in circuits in terms of energy transfers
Newton's laws of motion explain how things move. Don't worry that we're starting with the 3rd law, we'll cover the other two later. You also don't need to remember which law is which, or even that they are
called Newton's laws, but I've kept the names as it's nice to give him credit!
There are two motion graphs that you need to know: distance-time and velocity-time graphs. Students tend to find these straightforward when dealing with them separately but look at them together and it's chaos! This session will highlight the key features to look for so that you can cope with whatever type of motion graph is thrown at you in the exam.
This session tackles how quickly energy is used to do tasks, which is more simply known as power!
Learn what ions are here
Nuclear power is often controversial and misunderstood. Get you head around it in this session
The last thing we want is a nuclear reaction going out of control! Learn how we can avoid that in this session
In this session you will learn about the process of nuclear fusion
