PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS B

PHY1SCB

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject builds on PHY1SCA and extends the knowledge into areas of electromagnetic fields and early 20th century physics of space and the atom. Specifically, you will study the topics of optics, electrostatics, magnetostatics, magnetic induction, special relativity, nuclear and atomic structure. Through the laboratory program, you will explore these key concepts by making detailed measurements and analysing data. Together with PHY1SCA, this subject forms a foundational background in Physics for further study in the physical sciences.
