This module is designed to cover core areas of classical physics including equilibrium and elasticity, and mechanical waves. The module is designed for both engineering and physics students.

Core contents includes:

  1. equilibrium and elasticity
  2. fluid mechanics
  3. simple harmonic motion and simple pendulum
  4. mechanical waves, standing and travelling waves
  5. energy in wave motion
  6. interference and superposition of waves and phase
  7. waves on a string and wave modes
  8. sound waves
  9. resonance and sound, beats
  10. Doppler Effect
