68414 Advanced Mechanics6cp; 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 upon the foundation studies of mechanics undertaken in introductory physics subjects. It takes advantage of mathematical methods to analyse the motion of particles and bodies under the influence of forces and fields. The subject covers advanced topics of classical mechanics, such as dynamics in force fields, coupled oscillators, and rotational motion. The subject also provides an introduction to Lagrangian formalism in mechanics. The emphasis is on the development of advanced problem-solving skills.
