Chemistry Lecture at Birmingham University

A small group of students took the opportunity to extend their Chemistry knowledge beyond the syllabus by learning more about an application of the subject. The lecture at Birmingham University Departtment of Chemistry was on Forensic Chemistry; the use of chemistry by the justice system to help find, catch and convict criminals. This talk was the first in a series over the year for A level students putting Chemistry into a context.  #BeyondTheCurriculum #Science #FutureGoals
 
 
 




Investigating electrical current & voltage

A1 Physics students participated in a range of practical experiments to measure current and voltage across a fixed resistor (Ohm's Law).  Using a Cathode Ray Tube they were able to measure electrons emitted from the cathode as they accelerated and then hit the screen. At high voltages (5000V+) the pattern on the screen is circular, like ripples in a pond. That's electrons behaving like waves, which proves the wave-particle duality of electrons.  #coolscience #scienceisfun #highvoltagephysics
