  • PH-100 Dynamics, Oscillations and Waves

    In this module we will explore the basic concepts of classical dynamics, namely force, energy, momentum, and angular momentum are introduced and applied in a variety of physically important situations such as particle collisions and planetary motion. The module will then introduce the principles of oscillations and introductory concepts of waves.
