Hey Everyone,

Currently, I am structuring my notes around the syllabus dot points and I am just wondering how other people structure/ structured their HSC Physics Notes, for example:

For Module 5 and Module 6, did you just put the concepts around the specific dot point on one page, then put example calculations next to/ on the next page?

Thanks :)

So i've a got question regarding Module 2, and I'm wondering if my response makes sense.
World-class hurdlers raise their centre of mass as little as possible when they jump over the hurdles.
Why?

My response: Each time a hurdler jumps over the hurdles, their kinetic energy decrease until it totally becomes the gravitational potential energy at the highest point. Thus, by raising their centre of mass as little as possible, their kinetic energy will be higher, thus their velocity increases, allowing them to cross the hurdles in less time.

Please comment on my response; if I have used the wrong terminology or something doesn't make sense.
Thx  :)

Hey BlackFrost! :D

Sorry if this is a late response.

Great answer, I would suggest a few things though:

🔆 Define Key Terminology; such as Gravitational Potential Energy

🔆 Include the GPE formula, you learn in Yr 11; U = mgh --> This supports your response (and including a relevant formula into your response may be part of the marking guidelines)

🔆 Try to avoid saying, "Thus", twice in a sentence, as you can replace this with other synonyms like, "Thereby"

I hope this helps!

Hey Coolmate,

Sorry for the incredibly late response  ;D. I would say that the way you structure notes completely depends upon you. For myself, I didn't bother with writing down example calculations as they made my notes excessively long, and I could always figure out the maths behind a question. But if you are someone who struggles with maths, then, by all means, go for it! It all depends on your strengths and weaknesses. My weakness was memorisation of the larger concepts and facts, so I would make my notes as concise and explanatory as possible so that I could get a document to revise from and get the bigger picture. The key with notes is that they provide you with the big picture so that you know how those tiny little details fit into the overarching concept. This helps a ton with memorisation, at least for me.

Hope that helps! Again, sorry for the late response!

Hey r1ckworthy,

Thankyou for your response! I think I might do a combination of both a few example questions and write about the big concepts as well. :)

Thanks again,
