Physics - Science Hub


Update March 17

Welcome to our Science Hub, where you can access online resources and Zoom support from our expert tutors.

La Trobe is pausing current face to face teaching on campus from Tuesday 17 March, resuming on Tuesday 24 March, and transitioning subject delivery to online wherever possible. There will not be any face to face support in the Science Hub from March 17-23.

The Science Hub will be transitioning to online delivery with Zoom sessions replacing face-to-face from next Tuesday, 24 March.  A Zoom timetable will be available in the TIMETABLES section of the Science Hub LMS site shortly. We will also post information on how to use Zoom. We are all looking forward to supporting you in these challenging times.

Within our physics course, you will be introduced to the concepts of classical physics that underpin the physical sciences, engineering and other sciences.

We will cover the following modules:

  • mechanics
  • linear and rotational kinematics
  • dynamics
  • thermodynamics
  • waves
  • simple harmonic motion
  • optics
  • electrostatics
  • magnetostatics
  • magnetic induction
  • special relativity
  • nuclear and atomic structure.

Our tutors are willing and able to help you develop your understanding and confidence. Drop-in to our Science Hub for the one-on-one assistance that you may need.

Current students can access resources on our Learning Management System (LMS) homepage.
