# Important points for physics field trip on 25th Januray_Grade 9

Dear learners,

Kindly note the following points about the field trip to Science City, Ahmedabad.Ã‚Â

Visit to Science city, Ahmedabad will enhance studentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s physics Ã‚Â knowledge. This visit is intended to explore the applications of various concepts of physics like energy, work & power. It is explicitly planned for students to learn and have fun. They will be watching a 3D movie Ã¢â‚¬Å“Walking on the moonÃ¢â‚¬Â.

Alignment of CoS syllabus with different attractions of Science city is as follow.

 No. Unit name Learning outcomes to be achieved Science city attractions 1. Energy Give and identify examples of energy in different forms, including kinetic, gravitational, chemical, strain, nuclear, thermal (heat), electrical, light and sound. Energy Park 2. Give and identify examples of the conversion of energy from one form to another, and of its transfer from one place to another. 3. Describe how electricity or other useful forms of energy may be obtained from: Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Chemical energy stored in fuel Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Water, including the energy stored in waves, in tides, and in water behind hydroelectric dams Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Geothermal resources Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Nuclear fission Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Heat and light from the Sun (solar cells and panels) Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Wind. 3. Magnetism Distinguish between the design and use of permanent magnets and electromagnets. Hall of Science 4. Motion Describe and use the concept of weight as the effect of a gravitational field on a mass. 5. Light Describe the dispersion of light by a glass prism. 6. Sound Describe how the reflection of sound may produce an echo Demonstrate understanding that a medium is needed to transmit sound waves 7.
