NigeriaSat-1 is a micro satellite used in monitoring disasters managements and various mapping campaign WHILE NigercomSat-1 is a mega satellite responsible for creating an enabling environment for competition among operators in the industry as well as ensuring the provision of qualitative and efficient telecommunications services


V = image

U = Object

V = 2u

1/f₀ = (1/V) + (1/u)

1/f₀ = (1/2u) + (1/u)

1/f₀ = (1+2)/2u

1/f₀ = 3/2u

f₀ = 2u/3

Magnification = (V/f₀ + 1)

M = [2u/(2u/3)] + 1

M = [(2u/1) x (3/2u)] + 1

M = 3 + 1

M = 4


scalar quantities; they have magnitude but no direction and they are added by ordinary algebraic methods. WHILE vector quantities; they have both magnitude and direction and they are added by geometrical methods.








The principle of floatation states that when an object floats in a liquid the buoyant force/upthrust that acts on the object is equal to the weight of the object.

Weight of the object (W) = upthrust (F)


(i) Volume of the object

(ii) Density of the liquid


E= mgh = 40 X 10 X 0.3 X 6= 720J


P= mgh/t

m= PT/GH= 60 X 12 / 10 X 0.3 X 6 = 40g


Positive charge: This type of charge can be produced by rubbing a glass rod with silk.


P₁ = 600mmHg

V₁ = 500cm³

T₁ = 23°C + 273.15 = 296.15K

T₂ = 37°C + 273.15 = 310.15K

P₂ = 720mmHg

V₂ =?

P₁V₁/T₁ = P₂V₂/T₂

V₂ = (P₁V₁T₂)/T₁P₂

V₂ = (600 x 500 x 310.15)/(296.15 x 720)

V₂ = (93045000)/213228

V₂ = 436.36cm³

Resistivity of a wire is the resistance per unit length and cross-sectional area. It is the property of the material that opposes the flow of charge or the flow of electric current. The unit of resistivity is ohm metre. We know that R = ρ L / A.


R = ρ L / A.

ρ = R A /L

A = ρ L / R

A= 3.0 x 10^-6 x 4 / 0.5

A = 1.2 x 10^-5 / 0.5

A = 2.4 x 10^-5 m²


(i) It makes walking and running possible.

(ii) It enables gripping of belt in machines possible.

(iii) It enables nails to stay in the wall when driven.


(i) It always resists the motion, so extra energy is required to overcome it.

(ii) It causes wear and tear of machines.

(iii) It decreases the life expectancy of moving parts of vehicles.

Have a Target and Work Towards Actualizing it
You have decided to pass NECO Physics 2023 and I am sure of that. Now, the next thing you should do is set targets.

You have told yourself, “I will score A in Neco Physics 2023”, that’s not all. You need to plan on how to make it happen. Create a timetable and master plan to achieve your goals.

Get the Recommended Textbook on Physics for 2023 NECO Examination
Normally, NECO recommends books for the examination. But apart from NECO English Literature where certain novels are compulsory, you are free to use any good English Language textbook to prepare for NECO 2023 exam.

Some textbooks are more difficult to understand. If you have any topic you are finding difficult to understand, then get a textbook that will simplify the topics and make life better for you.

Do not Skip Physics Examples and Exercise you Will Come Across While Reading:
Many candidates are fond of skipping exercises and even examples while studying textbooks. In fact, we like notebooks so much that we could ask, “can I read my notebook and pass NECO Physics 2023?” Don’t be scared of attempting exercises in Biology. Face the challenges.
