VCE Physics Unit 2: Option 2.5: How do heavy things fly?

Year 11 Research Guide for Unit 2 Physics

Option 2.5: How do heavy things fly?

This option enables students to explore the aerospace principles that underpin the development of controlled powered flight and the application of these principles to aerospace design. Students observe how different forces affect flight. They investigate the principles of aerodynamics and flight control and how these principles are utilised in the design and operation of aircraft.

On completion of this unit the student should be able to apply concepts of flight to investigate and explain the motion of objects through fluids. 


The Library is open 8.00 to 4.00 Mon-Thurs, 8.00 to 3.30 Fri. We also have a selection of games available to play during recess and lunch. Only games from the Library are to be played.
