PH1007 - Advanced Stream Physics 2

Credit points: 3
Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: School of Engineering (pre 2015)

This calculus-based subject is partly co-taught with EG1012 Electric Circuits. Physics students need only register for PH1007. Introduction to electrical signals, circuit elements, dc circuit theory, and transient response: Electrical concepts, Electrical units and calculations used to apply them; Linearity; Energy transformations in electric circuits containing resistors, capacitors and inductors. Physics topics cover special relativity, early quantum, photons and matter waves, and nuclear physics.

Learning Outcomes

  • 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 physics;
  • 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.
Prerequisites: ((Maths B or equivalent or MA1020) and PH1005) or (Physics and Maths C)
