PHYS5323 - Energy and Motion

Credits: 3
The everyday task of automobile driving reveals physics in the practical realm. The use of measurement and mathematical methods to study motion and momentum, energy, and matter allows the prediction of future events. Cause-and-effect relationships lead to understanding actions, reactions, and interactions between matter and energy on the everyday scale as well as the atomic and quantum levels. Using a modelbased inquiry approach, learners investigate concepts such as classical and quantum mechanics, energy transformations, the nature of elementary particles, and special relativity as they relate to real-world applications.
