Physics

Observation is the key Solution shall be revealed.


High school Physics studies these main topics:

(1) Mechanics, like force, motion, and energy.
(2) Electricity and Magnetism, including circuit components.
(3) Waves and light, including fibre optics.
(4) Nuclear physics, including how reactors work.
    
Physics is widely regarded as the most difficult subject of all, but, at Hebron, we make physics seem easy by introducing every new concept by means of practical experiments so that students can grasp the reality of it.
