Physics 1202A/B


An introductory laboratory-based course in physics covering the foundational principles of oscillations, waves, fluids, electric fields and potential, DC circuits, magnetic fields, and magnetic induction. Fundamental physics concepts are introduced with examples in physical, biological, and medical processes to develop students’ problem-solving skills.

Antirequisite(s): Physics 1102A/B, Physics 1402A/B, Physics 1502A/B, the former Physics 1029A/B, the former Physics 1302A/B.

Prerequisite(s): One of Physics 1201A/B, Physics 1401A/B or Physics 1501A/B, or a minimum mark of 80% in Physics 1101A/B, or the former Physics 1028A/B or Physics 1301A/B. Pre-or Corequisite(s): Calculus 1000A/B or Calculus 1500A/B or Numerical and Mathematical Methods 1412A/B.

Extra Information: 3 lecture hours, 3 laboratory/tutorial hours. Note: This course, together with Physics 1201A/B, is a suitable prerequisite for modules having an introductory physics requirement (including modules in the Faculty of Science, modules offered by the basic Medical Science departments, and professional schools requiring a calculus-based laboratory course in physics).
