PHYS 2149 - Physics for Mechanical

Physics Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

PHYS 2149 is an algebra-based physics course that addresses topics of special relevance to mechanical engineering. There are three major topic areas: Part 1 Electricity; Part 2 Magnetism; and Part 3 Waves and Light. The accompanying lab activities emphasize the proper techniques of measurement, experimentation, graphical data analysis, and error analysis. Practical applications of physics are discussed.
