Hi everyone!
My daughter is studying A-levels in physics and she is appassionate about it.
I have never studied physics (I studied biology) but I'm trying to support my daughter and understand when she talks to me. And to share something with her.
So I will be posting my questions here, in search of some light.

"appassionate" or "passionate"?

Hello and :welcome: !

A great idea! Reminds me a bit of me giving tutorials to a granny who wanted to help her grandchildren with their homework on set theory. Well, maybe not set theory, just this Venn diagram stuff.

That's an amazing granny. I think that it was good for her too! It is always important to keep learning.

I always love it when parents take an interest in their child's learning instead of demanding from them that they get "straight A's". I hope both you and your daughter grow together in your appreciation for physics and the various other science/engineering disciplines discussed on this forum.

Welcome!
