For a chance to win the first prize (£100 Amazon voucher), or one of our prizes for runners-up, submit your typed or neatly written solutions of the following problems to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Physics Challenge, School of Mathematics and Physics, University of Lincoln, Lincoln, LN6 7TS. Please include your full name, postal address and email, as well as the name and address of your school. The closing date is 10 December, 2018. The competition is open to all young pre-university people in UK aged 15–18 years. It is not open to current university students. See full Terms and Conditions. The prize-giving ceremony will be held in Lincoln on 6 February 2019 before a Public Lecture. It is possible to win a prize even if you have not completed all of the questions, so you are encouraged to submit solutions if you do only some of the problems. Full solutions are required – no just answers – with complete proofs of any assertions you may take.
The problems can also be downloaded from Physics Challenge 2018
