Evans Effective Physics SSS Volume 1-3


EVANS Effective Physics SSS1-3 are a series that covers the new curriculum for Senior Secondary School Physics. The authors are experienced teachers from secondary and tertiary schools. The series aims at breaking down Physics concepts to the simplest and most understandable form for students making a first contact with Physics. In addition, the series hopes to appeal to the beauty of Physics – how it is applicable to everyday life – rather than being a subject of equations and numbers. The authors have used simple English language expressions to explain the concepts treated in this book.
The series comprises three sections (Section 1, Section 2 and Section 3). Each of these sections contains the expected topics in Physics for each year of study in the Senior Secondary School.

Section One includes topics to be learned in the first year of Senior Secondary (SS1); Section Two contains the Physics topics for the second year of Senior Secondary School (SS2), while Section Three includes the topics for the third year of Senior Secondary School (SS3). These sections cover all the themes in the new Physics Curriculum and include chapters on maintenance of machines, principles of production of electricity from dams, and uses of satellite technology. Each chapter starts with a list of expected learning objectives and a brief introduction to the topic of the chapter. These are followed by a detailed treatment of the sub-topics with emphasis on conceptual understanding of the basic principles. The sub-topics/sub-headings are designed to assist students follow the discussions presented in each chapter. To enhance conceptual understanding, beautiful illustrations and images have been used throughout the text. Student’s activities are included to test how students understand the treated Physics concepts. These activities provide hands-on experience with new concepts introduced in each chapter.
While most concepts in Physics are best described using mathematics, we have used equations only where necessary and employed the International System (SI) of units of measurements in most computations. There are plenty of examples to help students decipher the given quantities in the questions. At the end of each chapter, a summary of the key points that have been treated is
presented. The summaries are followed by exercises which include multiple choice questions and past questions of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and West African Examination Council (WAEC).
