Physics [Project Based] (1st semester)

SKU EDPB.SC006.AB Categories: , ,

Course Description

Physics is designed to provide students with an overview of traditional physics and the latest research in the field. Beginning with Newtonian mechanics, students learn that every object is acted upon by multiple predictable forces. The course moves on to investigate the laws of thermodynamics, covering fluid mechanics and the relationship between matter and energy. The course also explores the various models used to explain and apply the universal forces of electricity and magnetism. Students learn the characteristics of waves and the basics of optics before the final set of lessons on atomic physics. Here, students review the characteristics of the atom and its elemental particles and apply their knowledge to modern physics. Topics in this course will be reinforced through interactive, online lab assignments.

Course Breakdown

  • Velocity and acceleration
  • Vector quantities
  • Inertia and Newton’s first law
  • Forces and Newton’s second law
  • Interactions and Newton’s third law
  • Tool design project
  • Kinetic and potential energy
  • Conservation of energy and momentum
  • Elastic and inelastic collisions Circular motion project
  • Simple harmonic motion
  • Gravity and planetary motion
  • Fluid principles
  • Defining and measuring heat
  • Specific heat and heat transfer
  • Thermal expansion
  • Heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation
  • Processes related to heat
  • Four laws of thermodynamics

Course Goals

  1. Apply the principles of kinematics to one-dimensional motion and two-dimensional systems.
  2. Apply Newton’s Laws of Motion to forces and related quantities in linear systems.
  3. Analyze conservation principles as applied to energy and momentum.
  4. Design and adjust a tool based on the principles of simple machines. Design an amusement park ride by applying the principles of circular motion and mechanics.
  5. Relate concepts of simple harmonic motion to pendulums and planetary systems of motion.
  6. Analyze fluid dynamics systems using the principles developed by Bernoulli, Pascal, and Archimedes.
  7. Apply the laws of thermodynamics to heat and energy.
