Demonstrate an Understanding of Mechanics
Students will use the kinematic equations of motion to describe motion in one and two dimensions; including projectile motion. They will investigate Newton's Laws of motion, energy and impulse applied to a system. The will calculate torque and establish the forces needed for torque balance.
This course is assessed externally by AS 91171 (6 credits - its huge!) and will run through 1.2 as well. In 1.2 an internal standard will also be offered based on the theory of flight.
