Event description

Description

This bridging course prepares you for studies in physics, astronomy, engineering, medical sciences, and related disciplines. It provides learning support, a useful refresher and a solid foundation for your university studies in science.

If you have not completed physics to HSC level or equivalent, this course is recommended to give you background knowledge to support your studies in PHYS140/PHYS143 or PHYS106/107. It is also excellent preparation for PHYS149 and a foundation for the GAMSAT.

It covers the following topics:

  • Waves: Sound, electromagnetic spectrum, orders of magnitude and scientific notation

  • Matter and molecules: Thermal properties of matter, pressure in fluids and ideal gases

  • Forces: Vectors, forces in equilibrium, dynamics and motion, Newton's laws, gravity, energy and power

  • Electricity: Static electricity, electric circuits/fields/potential, magnetic fields and electromagnetic induction

  • Atomic and nuclear physics: Electrons, nuclei, atomic structure, radioactive decay and nuclear energy.
