The Physics Applications (year-long) course presents a thematic approach to physics using explorations of topics. Kinematics and dynamics are introduced by studying the physics of sports and transportation systems. Communication and information technologies are used to examine wave theory, light, and sound. Electrical and thermal energy topics are introduced and scientific predictions, such as those associated with radioactive decay, Newton's first two laws, the Law of Universal Gravitation are explored in everyday life.
Course Note: This course satisfies the Science (1 credit-Physics of 3 credits) graduation requirement.
