Department Of Physics

Physics -the branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy. The subject matter of physics includes mechanics, heat, light and other radiation, sound, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms.

All of physics is either impossible or trivial. It is impossible until you understand it, and then it becomes trivial. ERNEST RUTHERFORD

Physics Makes Things Possible

Without physics there would be no:

  • Grocery laser scanners
  • Space rockets
  • Light bulbs
  • Digital cameras
  • Cars
  • Cell phones
  • Airplanes
  • Solar panels
  • Fiber optics
  • DVD players
  • Computers
  • MP3 players
  • Flatscreen TVs

Physics laboratory

Physics Laboratory

In physics class, lab is central. Integral. Sacred. More than a mere place in the back of the classroom, the laboratory is the place where physics students do physics. It is in the laboratory that physics students learn to practice the activities of scientists – asking questions, performing procedures, collecting data, analysing data, answering questions, and thinking of new questions to explore.

At Clarence

The CHS physics faculty is well trained, we have 4 teachers handling physics in the middle and senior school. Teachers use the lecture, demonstration and the audio-visual aids to teach. Our teachers go as external evaluators for the board exam that helps them to teach the students better.

We have a well-equipped lab that caters to the present ISC and ICSE curriculum. The lab has equipment’s in optics, mechanics, acoustics, magnetism and electronics. Physics is taught to students from class 7 to 12.

Students of class 9 to 12 have separate theory and practical classes through which they are well equipped with the subject not just theoretically but also practically. Students get their concepts cleared by performing various experiments based on the syllabus that helps them gain the in-depth knowledge of the subject. Classes 7 and 8 have 2 assignments to submit for the half yearly and final exam based on the topics taught. Students of class 9 to 12 have to do a set of experiments as prescribed by the council as a part of their internal assessment for the half yearly and final exam. Std 12 students along with the practical have to also do a project on the topic of their choice for the board exam.

On the whole the physics department strives to give their best and bring out the best in each child.
