Course Description :
Force and motion
In every measurement that you make you need to measure in standard units. Over the millennia of measurement humanity has made use of a variety of means of measurement.
Units in electricity are a little more mysterious than those studied in force and motion, often people get confused and are not really sure what goes with what.
When you have worked through this section, you will be able to use the following units: degree (°), hertz (Hz), metre (m), metre/second (m/s) and second (s).
Energy resources and energy transfer
This module covers kilogram (kg), joule (J), metre (m), metre/second (m/s), metre/second2 (m/s2), newton (N), second (s) and watt (W)
Solids, liquids and gases
In working with the three states of matter, we find that there are a number of units that are very particular to this area of physics.
Magnetism and electromagnetism
This modules covers the following units: ampere (A), volt (V) and watt (W).
Radioactivity and particles
We have all heard about radioactivity. It always has a very scary aspect to it. But just what is radioactivity?
The physics of forces and motion can also be applied to the bigger, and more unknown area of space. We can understand the motion of planets and why we have solar systems, galaxies and the other contents of the universe. In this section we will look at the importance of gravity in space and some calculations of speeds in space.
