Level 2 Physics

PHY2
Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Whaea C. Northage

This course will include topics on mechanics (forces, motion, momentum and energy), waves (light and mechanical), electricity (static and DC) and electromagnetism. Students will learn conceptual, experimental, and problem-solving skills that many employers appreciate as valuable, and get to learn first hand from class work, practicals, and research.

The course will also include practical work which will form part of the internal assessment. If time permits, aspects of Modern and Atomic Physics will be explored as well.

This is a recommended course for students considering tertiary courses in Engineering, Health Science, Veterinary Science, Aviation, Construction, Food Technology, Radiation Therapy, Surveying, Architectural Studies, Building Science and numerous majors in a Science or Applied Science degree.
