Hi, I’m David. This site hosts comprehensive IB physics revision notes I’ve made for the post-2016 examinations syllabus. I got a 7 and here’s how you can too!
Important note: Please take note that although succinct notes are essential towards your revision, they should not be the only materials you cover – working through practice problems from your textbook and past papers are just as important.
App: For revision on the go, download our Android app. If you like our app, don’t forget to give it 5 stars and send in a review!
Offline access: For offline access, download offline browser and type in ibphysics.org for the url.
Happy revising! 🧠

Hey! Thanks a lot for the notes! I just wanted to know where you took notes from, is it from the textbook Cambridge Tsokos?
Hi, these are actually synthesized from quite a lot of sources, Tsoko included and other great resources such as physics.info.
Hi where can I find the notes
Thank you so much! This website has been so helpful as me and my peers make our own study notes. just one suggestion though – there is a extremely helpful equation for closed pipes in unit 4.4. Rather than memorize 3 equations, you can use f=(nS)/(4l), where n = number of harmonic (1, 2 or 3, not 1,3,5), S= The speed of sound (330 m/s), and l=length of pipe. This was extremely helpful, and saved me a few marks on my in class final.
Thanks for all the help!
Hey, thanks for the suggestion! I believe your formula is a variation of the current one since
v=fλ. Glad you found that this equation works best for you though. 🙂
In Topic 3: Thermal Physics, in the FYI section for specific heat capacity, should thermal capacity not be given by Q = mc rather than Q=cθ?
Hi! For clarification,
cis the thermal capacity here. Therefore, thermal capacity = energy / temperature change.
Thanks you very much!!!
