The 46th International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) was held at Mumbai, India from 5 to 12 July 2015.  The event was organized by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, a national centre of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai. IPhO is an annual competition in physics which involve individual theoretical and experimental competitions in Physics. For the experimental competition of the 46th IPHO, the academic team has developed an experimental problem consisting of two parts E1 and E2 and designed the complete experimental setup as an experimental kit. Please visit the following website for further details of IPhO 2015, E1 and E2. ( )


HBCSE got multiple copies of the experimental kit made for conducting the experimental competition during the 46th IPhO. After the competition, all the experimental kits were carefully dismantled and packed. One experimental kit consists of two packed paper cartons of sizes (105 x 30 x 22 cm and 46 x 46 x 22 cm) and the total weight of one complete experimental kit is 24 kg. HBCSE will send the kits through a transporter/courier agency and will be delivered to your given address. Please note that HBCSE has prepared a video to demonstrate the “Assembling of the complete experimental setup of IPHO 2015” from various components in the kit. The link to this video is available on IPhO 2015 website and on youtube.
