Welcome to Study IB Diploma Physics!
With 150+ pages of course materials, 1000+ questions to test yourself, 50+ virtual problem solving tutors and 100+ explanatory videos, you are in the right place to study and revise the Core topics.
New to physics?
Physics is the study of the largest and smallest objects in the universe, the laws that govern their movements and the conceptual approximations that allow us to make predictions from observations. If you like thinking deeply about intangible ideas and impressing your friends with cool knowlege then IB Diploma Programme Physics is almost certainly for you.
New to IB?
You'll probably by now have chosen the six subjects that will make up the optional aspects of your International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Regardless of whether you are taking Physics at Standard or Higher Level, you'll get a big sweep of information from the macroscopic ideas of Forces and Motion, Heat, Orbits, Vibrations and Energy Production right down to the nanoscale with Gas Particles, Light, Electricity and Quantum Physics.

Study IB aims to be a one-stop revision shop for Physics, Biology, Maths Studies and Mathematics. We're not quite finished yet, but all of our sites are written by IB school teachers with years of classroom, examining and textbook-writing experience. There's plenty of free stuff to get stuck into, and you can pay a small fee of €50 to access all content on Physics and Maths Studies - that's the same price as a textbook (and probably less than an hour's tuition!).

IB physicists are required to complete 40 (SL) or 60 (HL) hours of practical work as part of their course. Learn about the required practical work.
The Internal Assessment (IA) is an investigation on a physics topic of interest to you. You will spend 10 hours of class time on the work and are required to produce a 6-12 page scientific paper. The IA counts for 20% of your final grade.
Check out our top 10 investigation tips and an extensive list of possible ideas.
You or your class teacher will choose an 'Option' topic alongside those in the Core. StudyIB Physics has complete course notes available for Astrophysics and Engineering.
