HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICS 2 COURSE. ( SPH 4U1/SPH OA1)
some updating: Sept 2014
To see the *.doc lesson files properly, save them to disk and open them in MS Word.
Opening them inline in Internet Explorer messes up the images (and equations?).
This unit is the largest part of the course. The purpose of this unit is to
help students investigate straight-line, circular, and projectile motion and
to analyze this motion in terms of fundamental concepts.
Dynamics is the study of forces on moving bodies. This has many practical applications in everyday life, including just about every type of motion. Solving force and acceleration problems should increase the student's problem solving skills and ability to visualize a solution to a physical problem.
|It is assumed that you are
familiar with the basic concepts of acceleration and velocity in
1-dimension from your previous physics course.
You should also be familiar with interpreting d-t, v-t, and a-t graphs.
Part I. Kinematics (motion)
Part II. Dynamics (forces)
