This course is designed for students who require or who need to strengthen their physics knowledge for admission to a Bachelor of Science program at university. The curriculum is based on the Nova Scotia grade 11 and 12 Physics program. This course is intended to provide a general knowledge of the basic concepts of physics relating to one and two-dimensional kinematics, one and two-dimensional dynamics, the conservation laws of momentum and energy, simple harmonic motion, universal gravitation and orbital motion, waves and energy transfer, and electrostatics and electric circuits. Physics is based on solving problems associated with physical systems. The level of mathematical skill necessary to complete this course requires a strong background in algebra (especially word problems) and trigonometric functions. This course consists of lectures, demonstrations and solving word problems. There is nolab component to this class.
Textbook: No textbook required; a workbook will be distributed on the first day of class.
