Course Description: This course introduces topics in physics and mechanics. The course investigates the causes of changes in the state of motion — a field of physics called dynamics — in particular to understand the basis and application of Newton’s laws of motion. It also studies the ideas of Newtonian dynamics to the concepts of work and energy, and the laws of conservation of energy and momentum. These concepts will then be used to explore rotational dynamics and the parallels between the descriptions and dynamics of rotational and straight-line motion. All of these ideas are basic to physical ideas later in this unit. Topics include: Newton's laws of motion, work and kinetic energy, potential energy and energy conservation, momentum, impulse and collisions, rotations of rigid bodies, dynamics of rotations motion, thermal physics, temperature and heat, thermal properties of matter, thermodynamics, light, optics, interference, diffraction, oscillations and waves, periodic motion, wave interference and sound and hearing.
