This unit of study is a continuation of the more advanced treatment of Physics 1A (Advanced). Students who have completed PHYS1001 or PHYS1002 at Distinction level may enrol. It proceeds faster than Physics 1 (Technological), covering further and more difficult material. The lecture series contains modules on the topics of fluids, electricity and magnetism, and quantum physics.
Three 1-hour lectures, one 3-hour laboratory per week for 10 weeks and one 1-hour tutorial per week.
3-hour exam plus laboratories, and assignments (100%).
