Introduction to Physics is intended to explore the nature, scope, relevance and limitations of physics. This course aims to foster and develop a scientific way of thinking and a basic knowledge of scientific ideas. Topics include a review of measurement and the study of kinematics and motion, dynamics and energy, Newton’s laws, electricity and heat. Math and algebra are integrated into physics problems throughout the course.
Upon completion of this course students are prepared for Physics 62/63 or to enter an introductory level college physics course.
Equivalent Courses: Physics 52/ 53 is equivalent to Physics 050, and each is equivalent to Physics 11.
Available in Castlegar (as Physics 050), Grand Forks, Kaslo, Nakusp, Nelson, and Trail. To register, call the centre nearest you to meet with an ABE instructor.
or Corequisites: MATH 50 or equivalent
