About this book

Physics 1 has been developed specifically for the new specifications for AS level for teaching from September 2000. It is endorsed by OCR, and covers the first-year core material of Advanced Level physics. In conjunction with the other texts in the Cambridge Advanced Sciences series, it provides complete coverage of the OCR physics specification A. Self-assessment questions (with answers) and exam-style end-of-chapter exercises offer excellent opportunities for independent study. Chapter introductions and summaries provide the basis for structured revision. Full-colour illustration and student-friendly design make the science accessible to all. Physics 1 covers all of the first-year core material for Advanced Level physics.
