68414 Advanced Mechanics

6cp; 4hpw
Requisite(s): (68201 Physics in Action OR 68037 Physical Modelling) AND (33360c Mathematics for Physical Science OR 68038 Advanced Mathematics and Physics)
The lower case 'c' after the subject code indicates that the subject is a corequisite. See definitions for details.


This subject builds on the foundation studies of mechanics and fields undertaken in introductory physics subjects. It takes advantage of the methods of linear algebra and differential equations to analyse the motion of particles and bodies under the influence of forces and fields. The subject covers application relevant topics from advanced class mechanics, such as force dynamics, coupled oscillators and relativity. The emphasis is on the development of advanced problem-solving skills.
