Any test prep guide is only as good as its practice questions and answers, and that's another area where our guide stands out. Our test designers have provided scores of test questions that will prepare you for what to expect on the actual IB Physics (SL and HL) Examination. Each answer is explained in depth, in order to make the principles and reasoning behind it crystal clear.











that the flow of ideal fluids is irrotational: that is, particles in the fluid will not rotate around a center of mass. Bernoulli’s equation Let us imagine an ideal fluid in a tube of flow. By applying the law of conservation of energy with ideal fluid assumptions, we can arrive at what is known as Bernoulli’s equation: P + ρgh + ρv2/2 = C, where C is a constant for a given tube of flow. Basically, this equation states that in the absence of an external input of energy or a significant elevation

quantities, mass and volume in this case, are propagated to the derived quantity. The percent uncertainty in the density, Uρ/ρ, can be found by the equation: Uρ/ρ = sqrt((Um/m)2 + (UV/V)2). Basic safety procedures The most important safety precaution is to be prepared. Be acquainted with all potential hazards of any procedure, as well as all equipment, its associated safety procedures, and all lab manuals before beginning an experiment. Calibrate all equipment properly and handle it with care and

After bouncing around for a minute he finally comes to rest. The stretched cord is now 25 meters long. What is the spring constant of the bungee cord? a. 20 newtons per meter b. 39 newtons per

the magnification of the three lenses. The magnification of a lens is the ratio of the object size to the image size and is the negative of the ratio of the object distance to the image distance. The sign is positive if the image is upright and negative if the image is inverted. Answer A comes from adding the magnifications instead of multiplying the magnifications. Answer D has the wrong the sign. 125. A: When electrons drop to the ground level, they emit energy. In the same way, they can absorb

energy and jump from the ground state to an excited state, or from an excited state to a more excited state. To completely ionize a Hydrogen atom — for an electron to jump from the ground level and completely escape—takes 13.2 eV. However, it takes less energy to simply jump from the ground level to the first excited state. However, most of the energy needed to escape is used for that first jump. Answer C would be correct if the transition was from n = 3 to n = 2. Answer B would be correct if the
