# IB Physics

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?

1. David says:

Hi, these are actually synthesized from quite a lot of sources, Tsoko included and other great resources such as physics.info.

Hi David ! I’m taking IB physics this year and my teacher is not good at explaining anything. He is notorious in a couple of schools for his bad teaching. I was wondering if there was ever a time when you didn’t understand something in class and what you did when that happened ? Also I’m very grateful you made this site, I feel like I will be using it a lot! I want to study computer science 🙂 I’m also wondering if you got a tutor / extra physics class ever ? I’m just wondering in case I should do that. Thank you!

2. 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!

1. David says:

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?

1. David says:

Hi! For clarification, `c` is the thermal capacity here. Therefore, thermal capacity = energy / temperature change.

Hi David, firstly I wanted to thank you, this notes are really helping me, they are great!! I wanted to ask if you had for Math HL too, or where do you recommend us to get them from. Thank you!!!!
