This module serves as an introduction to Experimental Physics. Students initially explore concepts of physical measurement before an algebraic approach to analysing motion and forces is outlined. Subsequently both the mechanical and thermometric properties of matter are introduced with simple examples and numerical problems.
Topics in introductory astronomy including physics of the Earth, Solar System and large scale Universe, are also covered.
This module covers several topics of the Core of Physics, as defined by Institute of Physics, but only at an introductory level.
