SCP1134 Foundations of Physics
Credit Points: 15
This is a broadly based unit which introduces students to physics used within a variety of contexts. Physics principles and methods applicable to motion, sound, heat, light, radioactivity and electricity will be investigated. The unit is designed for students who have not completed upper level secondary school physics. It is suitable for those students who require a fundamental understanding of the concepts of Physics as part of their studies, but who will not continue to further study in Physics and Engineering. This unit does not satisfy the Physics prerequisites for enrolment in SCP1111, SCP1112 and SCP2342, and specific Engineering units, that require WACE Physics 3A/3B as a pre-requisite.
