||College of Science and Engineering
This calculus-based subject is an introduction to special topics in Physics. The special
topics in any given year may include: thermodynamics, special relativity, and nuclear
and particle physics. There is also a laboratory component which introduces electric
circuits, physical optics, and laboratory projects.
- recall or recognize information, concepts, and principles of fundamental electric
circuits, including the correct use of terminology and definitions;
- translate, comprehend, or interpret the information in a word problems while deciding
on the relevant physics principles and diagrams necessary to solve problems in modern
- select, identify, and use the appropriate data and physics principles to complete
a problem or task, including the manipulation of mathematical entities to solve problems
in modern physics;
- 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.
