68101 Physics 16cp; 6hpw: 2.0hpw (lecture), 2.0hpw (practical), 2hpw (tutorial)
Anti-requisite(s): 68037 Physical Modelling AND 68041 Physical Aspects of Nature
Mathematics (not General or Standard)
This is a foundation physics subject primarily for students in the physical and chemical sciences. Students learn about the fundamentals of dynamics and statics, fluid mechanics, thermal physics, waves, and optics. A strong emphasis is placed on the investigative nature of physics research with an integrated laboratory program where students further develop their problem-solving skills relating to the lecture and tutorial material. They also gain an appreciation of good experimental design and the significance of information obtained in real-life modelling situations.
Autumn session, City campus
