Siti Nursaila Bt Alias, Faridah Bt Ibrahim

Force and motion consists of abstract concepts which often reported difficult to be learned by students. The aim for this study is to identify student’s ability level in problem solving skill which involved balanced force of surface plane system, inclined plane system, pulley system, lift system and combination system. Data collection was through physics problem solving test questionnaire carried out to 189 science stream Form four students from three secondary schools in Kuala Kangsar district, Perak. All the data obtained were processed by using SPSS 21 version and presented in form of frequencies and percentages. The result showed problem solving ability level among students was poor. Suggestions have been proposed to help teachers and students for teaching and learning (P&P) improvement and on the other hand to solve problem in Physics subject in future.
