High school student Definition and 11 Discussions

A secondary school describes an institution that provides secondary education and also usually includes the building where this takes place. Some secondary schools provide both lower secondary education (age 12 to 15) and upper secondary education (age 15 to 18) i.e. levels 2 and 3 of the ISCED scale, but these can also be provided in separate schools, as in the American middle and high school system. In the UK, elite public schools typically admit pupils between the ages of 13 and 18. UK state schools accommodate pupils between the ages of 11 to 18.
Secondary schools follow on from primary schools and prepare for vocational or tertiary education. Attendance is usually compulsory for students until age 16. The organisations, buildings, and terminology are more or less unique in each country.

    Deducing as much as possible from m, a, Ff, and angle (pulling an object horizontally with a handle)

    Fg = m * g: Fg = 30 * 9.8 = 294 N Fnet = m * a: Fnet = 30 * 1.2 = 36 N Fax = Fnet + Ff: Fax = 36 + 10 = 46 Fa = Fax / cos(angle): Fa = 46 / cos(25) = 50.75 Fay = Fa * sin(angle): Fay = 50.76 * sin(25) = 21.45 Fn = Fg - Fay: Fn = 294 - 21.45 = 272.55 Ff = mu kinetic * Fn, solving for...

    Ion thruster using CRTs?

    Hello! I'm trying to make a simple ion thruster that will be used in a science fair so I'm not concerned about its efficiency but just creating at least some thrust. However I wanted to make it as close as reality as possible, using every component and respecting its details if possible. Ion...

    Programs How should I prepare for Berkeley's Math 1A & Physics 8A?

    I just finished my sophomore year of high school and I'm taking Math 1A and physics 8A this summer. I got A's for both my physics II (school doesn't offer AP phys) and advanced algebra 2 + trig (I think it's equivalent to precalc, highest level offered in my grade) classes, but I feel like the...

    Schools High School Physics

    Would it be a good idea to take both AP Physics C and AP Physics 2 in my senior year of high school (next year for me)? Does anyone have any experience with this and if so what was it like? Would I be biting off more than I can chew or should I go for it?
