PH1005 - Advanced Stream Physics 1

Credit points: 3.0
Year: 2017
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: College of Science and Engineering

This calculus-based subject covers topics in mechanics which forms the basis for further studies in engineering (statics and dynamics) as well as physics. This subject will cover experimental data analysis, vectors, kinematics, projectile motion, Newtonian mechanics, kinetic energy, potential energy and work, conservation of energy, centre-of-mass and momentum, conservation of momentum for systems of particles, rotational kinematics and dynamics.

Learning Outcomes

  • recall or recognize information, concepts, and principles of fundamental mechanics, including the correct use of physics terminology and definitions;
  • translate, comprehend, or interpret the information in a word problem while deciding on the relevant principles and diagrams necessary to solve fundamental problems in mechanics;
  • select, identify, and use the appropriate data and physics principles to complete a problem or task, including the manipulation of mathematical entities to solve fundamental problems in mechanics;
  • integrate and analyse experimental data using mathematical and graphical techniques in order to develop a broad array of basic skills and tools of experimental physics and data analysis;
  • assess or critique experimental data on the basis of specific standards and criteria, including identifying, describing and justifying the best approach to solving a particular experimental problem.
Prerequisites: (Senior Maths B or MA1020 or MA1000 or MA1008) or admission to 102809 or 112609 or 102909 or 102810 or 102910 or 103310 or 50110M or 116209. Allow concurrent for MA1000 and MA1008.
