PH 101: PHYSICS OF THE NATURAL WORLD

A lecture and tutorial course which covers the physics essential to understanding the natural world, namely classical mechanics, thermodynamics and electromagnetism. Aims: The aim of the module is to equip students with a solid background in classical physics, which constitutes a crucial piece of basic scientific knowledge needed to develop further skills in quantitative natural science. Students should be able to apply this knowledge to a range of situations, both familiar and unfamiliar, by conceptualising the core physical principles required to understand the system. They should be able to make appropriate approximations and hence compute the physical behaviour of a system.
