GCSE Physics Required Practicals is a collection of interactive required practical simulations designed to support the teaching of AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC, and WJEC Eduqas GCSE specifications. This title is available as part of the  Focus Science Online Resource Pack. See below for sample screenshots and a list of topics.

Specific Heat capacity

The animation shows an experiment to measure the specific heat capacity of a metal.

Thermal Insulation

In this experiment you can investigate the factors that determine the rate at which a container of water cools down.

Radiation and Absorption

●  Emision
●  Absorption


In this experiment you can investigate how the resistance of a wire depends on its length.

Voltage-Current Characteristics

● In this experiment you can investigate how the current flowing through a component is related to the voltge across the component.

● There’s a choice of three components: a resistor, a light bulb and an LED.


In This experiments you can study the density of varios materials and liquids


The animation shows a ray of light passing through a parallel sided glass block.


 Water Waves

 Waves on a String

Force and Extension

In this experiment you can investigate the stretching effects of a force on two different springs.

Force and Acceleration

In this experiment you can investigate the relationship between force and acceleration, keeping the mass constant.
