Official JAMB Syllabus for Physics Let’s start with the first topic:

1. Measurements and Units UTME candidates should focus their attention on; Length area and volume:

Metre rule, Venier calipers Micrometer Screw-guage Mass unit of mass use of simple beam balance Time unit of time time-measuring devices Fundamental physical quantities Derived physical quantities and their units Combinations of fundamental

quantities and determination of their units Dimensions definition of dimensions Limitations of experimental measurements accuracy of measuring instruments simple estimation of significant figures.

After reading the topic: Measurement and Units, candidates should be able to;

identify the units of length area and volume; use different measuring instruments;

determine the lengths, surface areas and volume of regular and irregular bodies;

identify the unit of mass;

use simple beam balance, e.g Buchart’s balance and chemical balance;

identify the unit of time;

use different time-measuring devices;

relate the fundamental physical quantities to their units deduce the units of derived physical quantities Determine the dimensions of physical quantities;

use the dimensions to determine the units of physical quantities test the homogeneity of an equation determine the accuracy of measuring instruments;

estimate simple errors

Scalars and Vectors Focus your attention on; definition of scalar and vector quantities examples of scalar and vector quantities relative velocity resolution of vectors into two perpendicular directions including graphical methods of solution.

After reading the topic “Scalars and Vectors” candidates should be able to;

distinguish between scalar and vector quantities;

give examples of scalar and vector quantities;

determine the resultant of two or more vectors;

determine relative velocity;

resolve vectors into two perpendicular components;

use graphical methods to solve vector problems

3. Motion Under this topic, candidates should focus their attention on;

Types of motion:

translational, oscillatory, rotational, spin and random linear motion speed, velocity and acceleration equations of uniformly accelerated motion motion under gravity distance-time graph and velocity time graph instantaneous velocity and acceleration. Projectiles:

calculation of range, maximum height and time of fight applications of projectile motion Newton’s laws of motion:

inertia, mass and force relationship between mass and acceleration impulse and momentum conservation of linear momentum (Coefficient of restitution not necessary) Motion in a circle:

angular velocity and angular acceleration centripetal and centrifugal Applications Simple Harmonic Motion (S.H.M):

definition and explanation of simple harmonic motion examples of systems that execute S.H.M period frequency and amplitude of S.H.M velocity and acceleration of H.M energy change in H.M
