A Bridging Course to First Year Physics with Peter Eyland
This is a preparatory course for those taking University Physics who have not done Physics before. It gives an introduction to the language, style and techniques of Physics. This is done with some basic terms and thinking about how to describe motion and its causes.
Physics as the nature of things
Average and instantaneous acceleration
The techniques of finding slopes (how quickly something changes in time or space) and finding areas (the effect of something through time or space) will now be applied to position, speed and acceleration.
Speed and Acceleration - examples. Fully worked answers are provided.
|Speed and Acceleration examples
More Speed and Acceleration - examples. Some practice questions for you to try.
|More Speed and Acceleration examples
Descartes and Cartesian co-ordinates
Vectors - example problems. Fully worked answers are provided.
More projectile motion examples.
Lecture 7 Velocity and speed
Momentum as the quantity of motion
Newton's laws of motion
Internal and external forces
Dynamics - example problems. Try these for practice.
The work done by a force
Work and energy example problem. Try these for practice.
Power as the rate of doing work
Power & Momentum - Example problems. Try these for practice.
|Power and momentum examples
The force of static friction
A few exam papers &/or tutorial questions with full worked solutions may be obtained for a small fee. Please email if you require assistance with this.
