Class Objectives
/Class Outline
This is a specialized course of the Program in Science Education. The purpose of this course is to learn and understand specialized knowledge of physics among other science subjects.
Class Schedule Lesson1: Guidance
Lesson 2: Laws of Motion (Newton's Law of Motion, Galilee's Principle of Relativity)
Lesson 3: Laws of motion (inertial mass and gravitational mass and equals in physics)
Lesson 4: Simple motion of particles (equation of motion and its solution, parabolic motion of particles under gravity)
Lesson 5: Simple Motion of Particles (Harmonic Oscillators)
Lesson 6: Simple Motion of a Particle (Motion of a Particle on a Circumference)
Lesson 7: Universal Attraction (Kepler's Law and Universal Attraction, Discovery of Neptune, Tides)
Lesson 8: Law of Conservation of Energy (work, kinetic energy)
Lesson 9: The Conservation of Energy Law (Conservation of Mechanical Energy Law)
Lesson 10: Angular momentum conservation law (vector product, central force and angular momentum conservation law)
Lesson 11: Mechanics of multi-particle systems (conservation of momentum, conservation of angular momentum and energy conservation law of two-particle systems)
Lesson 12: Continuum mechanics (Vibration of a string)
Lesson 13: The concept of analytical mechanics
Lesson 14: Group work 1
Lesson 15: Group Work 2

There will be a final exam.
