Course Description

This course is an introduction to the branch of physics called mechanics. Mechanics is the study both of how objects move and why they move the way they do. Describing the motion of objects requires understanding the basic kinematics quantities position, displacement, velocity, and acceleration, as well as the connection between them. Understanding the causes of motion can be achieved by considering the forces acting on the object and/or by focusing on the conserved properties of the system (momentum, energy, angular momentum). Mechanics applies to a wide range of phenomena, essentially to anything that moves, but this course will highlight ties to and applications in the physical sciences. 

Prerequisites: Grade 12 Physics or equivalent. 

Corequisite: either MATH 1001 or MATH 1003. Students intending to take Physics courses beyond Introductory Physics or continue in the Physical Sciences stream should take MATH 1003 and PHYS 1021 as co-requisites to this course



Masters or PhD in Physics
