Degree: Physics (Masters) - Bristol University

MyTutor guarantee

I am currently studying Physics at the University of Bristol. I was born in Barcelona and was raised speaking both Spanish and Catalan. I attended a British school where I completed my GCSE and A level examinations.

I will try and make the sessions encouraging and enjoyable, they will be shaped around what the student needs help with.

The primary focus of the Physics sessions will be to consolidate the understanding of the theory. Once the concepts have been grasped we will work to develop and improve problem solving skills. Exam technique will be gained as the student works through and then corrects past exam questions.

During the Spanish sessions we will work to improve the student’s grammar skills as well as broadening their vocabulary. In order to improve their speaking skills and gain confidence, the student will be encouraged to speak in Spanish in addition to having regular conversations about a broad range of topics.

I am willing to work with determined pupils as I believe that with hard work anyone can succeed.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me!

When an electrically charged object (e.g rod) charges an uncharged object (e.g. metal sphere) that is nearby with the opposite charge.

How does this happen?

The charged rod causes the charges on the sphere to be redistributed.

For instance, if the rod is positively charged and is brought near a point A on the surface of a sphere, a negative charge will accumulate at point A inside the sphere. This occurs because electrons inside the sphere are attracted to the rod and are free to move across electrically conducting objects.

*Important to note that the total charge of the sphere does not change.
