These experimental reports were written as part of the coursework for AS level Physics. The brief was to design and complete an experiment, analyse the results and make improvements. The experiment was then repeated and the results analysed to assess whether the improvements worked. So this coursework tests whether students can improve an experiment.
Marks were awarded for a good explanation of the physics involved, for clarity of explanation of the method and for analysis. This was the first time students had written an abstract and the first time they had been asked to calculate uncertainty for values found in an investigation.
