Overview
About the course:
The world around us has an astonishing variety of phenomenon. Physics gives us a chance to take a close look and try to understand these. We have evidence to support the work since ancient times by thinkers, philosophers and scientists, who tried to unravel the mystery around us .The excitement of learning to do systematic scientific work is the root of this course. You will learn methods of measurementincluding universally accepted norms. Kinematics and Dynamics, one that helps us realise how things move and the other what causes them to move .Some energy is required to move things and we will define some scientific terminology in a way that communication about physics to others is easy. In this course we will learn about different ways bodies move –motion in a straight line, in a plane. You will also learn about system of particles and rigid body rotation and extend the same to explore gravitation. We have to first understand the basics, therefore in times when scientific skills are far advanced as compared to what they were many years back, we will still revisit those ideas and study physical laws within limits. It is only after understanding the fundamental rules we will be able to extend them to more complex situations in real life. .mathematics is important for the physics course because it lends excitement to i , if we say the car moves with a speed of x km/h and 80km/h. Physics problem with numbers is called numerical. We will work on many of them during the course.
