# VCE Physics/Unit 2/AoS 2 : How do electric circuits work?

< VCE Physics | Unit 2

## Description from the Study Design edit

Modelling is a useful tool in developing concepts that explain physical phenomena that cannot be directly observed. In this area of study students develop conceptual models to analyse electrical phenomena and undertake practical investigations of circuit components. Concepts of electrical safety are developed through the study of safety mechanisms and the effect of current on humans. Students apply and critically assess mathematical models during experimental investigations of DC circuits

The intention of these options is that students choose an option they are interested in and investigate it themselves. They can use the notes in each of these sections to help with this.
