About me

Hey! My name is David and I study theoretical physics at the University of Sheffield but I'm originally from Newcastle.

Studying theoretical physics allows me to pursue my interests in both physics and mathematics. It also means that I have a deep understanding of the concepts taught to physics and maths students at GCSE and A-Level. Between GCSE, A-Levels and 2 years at university, I have sat too many exams to count! So, I have plenty of experience in an exam hall and can help students through what is always a stressful experience.

Outside of university, I'm a huge film fan and I love listening to electronic music. Also, I (unfortunately) support Newcastle United.

About my sessions

My online lessons will generally cover one specific topic. I'll ask the student a series of questions on the topic (these will build upon one another) so that I can understand the extent of their knowledge on the subject. The questions will progress from easy to difficult but I will be there to take the student through each step! Using this method, I will build their understanding. Then, I will present the student with exam-style questions so that they know what they are expected to answer in the exam. My lessons will be of a casual, comfortable style so the student feels at ease. Also, I aim to make lessons as engaging and interesting as possible.

Questions David has answered

Describe simple harmonic motion (SHM). Sketch a displacement-time graph for a particle undergoing SHM and the corresponding velocity-time and acceleration-time graphs. Use these graphs to describe the relationship between accleration and displacment.

Simple harmonic motion is periodic motion in which a restoring force acts in the opposite direction to that of displacement and is directly proportional to the displacement.The displacement-time graph for SHM should be of sinusoidal form. As should the velocity-time and acceleration-time graphs but should be shifted by a half/full period in the x-direction respectively.Acceleration-time graph flipped in x-axis compared to displacement-time graph. Therefore, acceleration is in the opposite direction but equal in magnitude (hence directly proportional) to displacement. Student should recognise that restoring force = mass * acceleration hence, relate these statements to those in the definition of SHM above.Simple harmonic motion is periodic motion in which a restoring force acts in the opposite direction to that of displacement and is directly proportional to the displacement.The displacement-time graph for SHM should be of sinusoidal form.
