Upon completion of this subject, students will be able to:
- define concepts, describe the relationship between quantities and solve numerical problems in the areas of linear and rotational mechanics, fluids, electricity and magnetism, waves (sound and light), atomic and nuclear physics;
- interpret and analyse a physical system from a text, image or graphical form; be able to describe the behaviour of fundamental physical systems and the relationships between quantities that they possess; and
- express an understanding of scientific methods.
- Topics will be available to enrolled students in the subjects Learning Management System site approximately one week prior to the commencement of the teaching period.
No eligibility requirements
- Equipment requirements - • Headphones or speakers ( required to listen to lecture and other media provided in subjects, a USB style headset has proven to provide superior audio quality to the jack style headset when used for online teaching software) • Headset, including microphone (highly recommended for participation in virtual classrooms) • Webcam (may be required for participation in virtual classrooms and/or media presentations)
- Software requirements - It is essential for students to have reliable internet access in order to participate in and complete their subjects. UNE's minimum requirements for all students in relation to the hardware and software a student requires to support their learning are found at: http://www.une.edu.au/current-students/support/it-services/hardware
- Travel requirements - Travel may be required to attend the Final Examination for this subject.
Do you need a background understanding of physics to progress in your studies or career but did not study this subject at high school? This subject will equip you with a foundation in physics that will allow you to pursue further study in applied physics. You can also use this subject as a "stand-alone" physics subject. You will explore the basics of scientific methods and learn to interpret and analyse physical systems. You will examine topics including kinematics, dynamics, electricity and magnetism, wave motion, atomic and nuclear physics. You will gain the skills to describe the relationship between quantities and solve numerical problems in the areas of linear and rotational mechanics, fluids, electricity and magnetism, waves (sound and light), atomic and nuclear physics.
