Study Notes

Physics ICSE Class 10

In ICSE Class 10, the Physics curriculum covers various topics including force, sound, electricity, magnetism, heat, modern physics, and more. Here, we explore two central themes: sound and force.


  • Sound: Produced when a body vibrates; involves the movement of air molecules, creating pressure fluctuations.
    • Reflection of sound waves
    • Echo
    • Determination of the speed of sound using the method of echo
    • Examples of resonance
    • Characteristics of music and noise


  • Force: Defined as the rate of change in the object's linear momentum; comes in two types: translational motion and rotational motion.
    • Momentum
    • Torque
    • Centre of Gravity
    • Uniform Circular Motion

For instance, unit 1 of the ICSE Physics syllabus includes three chapters: 'Force', 'Work Energy and Power', and 'Machines', covering fundamental principles like Newton's second law of motion and gravitational forces. The syllabus emphasizes applying these principles practically, envisioning scenarios where they might come up in everyday life.

As students encounter these ideas in their learning journey, it's vital that they read carefully, take notes, and engage with problem-solving exercises to reinforce their grasp on the physical world.

Explore core concepts of sound and force in the ICSE Class 10 Physics curriculum, covering topics such as reflection of sound waves, momentum, and uniform circular motion. Learn about the principles of physics through practical applications and scenarios.
