Does anyone have a list of all the required practicals for the OCR A Physics specification?

Well uhh, looks like no one has it, but I made a list of I think all the practicals needed for paper 1

AS

1) Techniques and procedures used to investigate the motion and collisions of objects. Apparatus may include trolleys, air-track gliders, ticker timers, light gates, data-loggers and video techniques

2) Techniques and procedures used to determine the acceleration of free fall in the laboratory using trapdoor and electromagnet arrangement or light gates and timer.

3) Techniques and procedures used to determine terminal velocity in fluids, e.g. ball-bearing in a viscous liquid or cones in air.

4) Techniques and procedures used to investigate force–extension characteristics for arrangements which may include springs, rubber bands, polythene strips.

5) Techniques and procedures used to determine the Young’s modulus for a metal.

A2

1) Techniques and procedures used for an electrical method to determine the specific heat capacity of a metal block and a liquid

2) Techniques and procedures used for an electrical method to determine the specific latent heat of a solid and a liquid.

3) Techniques and procedures used to investigate PV = constant (Boyle’s law) and P / T = constant.

4) Techniques and procedures used to investigate circular motion using a whirling bung.

5) Techniques and procedures used to determine the period/frequency of simple harmonic oscillations

AS
1) Techniques and procedures used to investigate the electrical characteristics for a range of ohmic and non-ohmic components.
2) Techniques and procedures used to determine the resistivity of a metal.
3) Techniques and procedures used to determine the internal resistance of a chemical cell or other source of e.m.f.
4) Techniques and procedures used to investigate potential divider circuits which may include a sensor such as a thermistor or an LDR.
5) Techniques and procedures used to use an oscilloscope to determine frequency.
6) Techniques and procedures used to demonstrate wave effects using a ripple tank.
7) Techniques and procedures used to observe polarising effects using microwaves and light.
8) Techniques and procedures used to investigate refraction and total internal reflection of light using ray boxes, including transparent rectangular and semi-circular blocks.
9) Techniques and procedures used for superposition experiments using sound, light and microwaves.
10) Techniques and procedures used to determine the wavelength of light using a double-slit and a diffraction grating.
11) Techniques and procedures used to determine the speed of sound in air by formation of stationary waves in a resonance tube.
A2
1) Techniques and procedures used to investigate capacitors in both series and parallel combinations using ammeters and voltmeters.
2) Techniques and procedures to investigate the charge and the discharge of a capacitor using both meters and data-loggers.
3) Techniques and procedures used to determine the uniform magnetic flux density between the poles of a magnet using a current-carrying wire and digital balance.
4) Techniques and procedures used to investigate magnetic flux using search coils.
5) Techniques and procedures used to investigate transformers.
6) Techniques and procedures used to investigate the absorption of α- particles, β-particles and γ-rays by appropriate materials.
7) Techniques and procedures used to determine the half-life of an isotope such as protactinium.

These are all the ones on the specification. There might be others you need to know how to do, for paper 1 on the oscillations it doesn't show in the specification anything about this question but it still came up in the 2017 paper.

for Light gates method and photogate and picket method;
does it matter what velocity the card/interrupt card enters the 1st light gate?
