SAYT1005 Introduction to University Physics 大学物理入门

Systematically introduce the basic concepts for university physics in mechanics, including the concept of vectors, motions in 2 dimensions and 3 dimensions, and the relation between force and motion described by Newton’s three fundamental laws. It will lay a solid foundation for the students to start the physics courses at the university level.

本课程将系统讲授大学物理的力学,包括矢量、运动学、以及运动与受力的关系。牛顿三大定律在平动与转动中的应用、动量与能量守恒等关键物理知识将是本课程强调的重点。本课程将为学生的大学物理学习打下坚实的基础。
