Brief history of the International System

The creation of the decimal Metric System at the time of the French Revolution and the subsequent deposition of two platinum standards representing the meter and the kilogram, on 22 June 1799, in the Archives de la République in Paris can be seen as the first step in the development of the present International System of Units. […]

Physics in English: Second law of Thermodynamics

Do you ever wonder how the universe came into existence? The Big Bang theory tell us that the universe began as an infinite amount of energy exploded and began to spread into the universe as we know it today. Alright, that’s great, but what’s energy? Energy is simply the ability to do work, and work is the movement of something by […]

Physics in English: How hair-dryers work

How hair-dryers work «Many people are familiar with the daily routine of washing, drying and styling their hair. Although hair will eventually dry on its own if given enough time, most people reach for a hair-dryer to speed up the process. While science may have disproven the link between wet heads and catching colds, it’s […]

Physics in English: Significant digits and rounding off

Di seguito una risorsa didattica per l’insegnamento della Fisica CLIL in Inglese, inerente alle cifre significative e all’arrotondamento. The significant digits represent the valid digits of a number. The following rules summarize the significant digits: Nonzero digits are always significant. All final zeros after the decimal points are significant. Zeros between two other significant digits […]

Physics: Esercizi sulla misura e sulla notazione scientifica

Di seguito alcuni esercizi utili per le attività nelle classi in cui sono stati attivati dei percorsi CLIL di Fisica. Exercise 1. A filament has a diameter of 0.20 microns. Express this diameter in terms of a centimeter. (1 micron = 1 micrometer). Exercise 2. Estimate the number of seconds in a human “lifetime”. We’ll […]
