Physics is the study of matter and energy and how they interact. It underpins all other sciences, and is the foundation of all engineering and technology. This unit of study forms part of a broad overview of the major topics of physics, which provides the necessary background knowledge and practice of scientific skills for students who wish to enrol in intermediate units of study in physics. You will cover the topics of electromagnetism, fluids, and quantum physics. You will develop experimental skills, and through enquiry, observation and measurement you will learn how to apply your physical understanding to real-world problems. This unit of study is intended for students who have a strong background in Physics and an interest in studying more advanced topics, with more rigorous proofs. Students who have completed PHYS1001 or PHYS1002 at Distinction level may enrol.
