IB Physics is a rigorous pre-university course in the IB Diploma Programme, offered at both Standard Level (SL) and Higher Level (HL). It covers core topics like mechanics, thermodynamics, waves, and electricity, with additional advanced topics for HL students. The course includes practical work and an individual investigation, culminating in internal and external assessments. It aims to develop analytical, problem-solving, and scientific skills for further studies in science and engineering.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Physics course is a rigorous pre-university science program that is part of the IB Diploma Programme, designed for students aged 16 to 19. It offers two levels of study: Standard Level (SL) and Higher Level (HL), each with its specific curriculum requirements, but both aim to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of fundamental physical concepts, principles, and theories. Here's an overview of the key components of the IB Physics course:

Core Topics

Both SL and HL students cover the following core topics:

  1. Measurements and Uncertainties

    • Precision, accuracy, and error analysis
    • Uncertainties and significant figures
  2. Mechanics

    • Kinematics, dynamics, Newton’s laws
    • Work, energy, power, momentum, and circular motion
  3. Thermal Physics

    • Temperature, heat, internal energy, and the laws of thermodynamics
  4. Waves

    • Wave characteristics, sound waves, and light waves
    • Wave behavior, including reflection, refraction, and diffraction
  5. Electricity and Magnetism

    • Electrostatics, electric current, resistance, and circuits
    • Magnetic fields and electromagnetism
  6. Circular Motion and Gravitation

    • Uniform circular motion, gravitational forces, and fields
  7. Atomic, Nuclear, and Particle Physics

    • Atomic structure, radioactivity, nuclear reactions
    • Fundamental particles and interactions
  8. Energy Production

    • Energy sources, power generation, and environmental impact

Additional Higher Level (HL) Topics

HL students study additional topics to deepen their understanding:

  1. Wave Phenomena

    • Doppler effect, standing waves, and more complex wave interactions
  2. Fields

    • In-depth study of gravitational, electric, and magnetic fields
  3. Electromagnetic Induction

    • Faraday’s law, Lenz’s law, and applications of induction
  4. Quantum and Nuclear Physics

    • Quantum mechanics, wave-particle duality, and advanced nuclear physics
  5. Option Topics

    • HL students choose one option from topics like relativity, engineering physics, imaging, or astrophysics
