Description

Please check out the many preview lectures and lecture descriptions before you enroll.
IF in any doubt, do not enroll.

This is a a High School level Physics course, covering the Space topic from the old New South Wales Higher School Certificate course, and going beyond syllabus requirements in several places.  The new syllabus, for which a course is in preparation, omits much of the material covered in this course. 

The course starts at a very basic level, with discussion of gravity, and builds on this gradually, covering projectile motion and uniform circular motion.  The course builds on these to consider Kepler’s Laws, and Newtons Law of Universal Gravitation.  The course then moves on to consider Special Relativity.

Concepts are explained simply, using illustrations where appropriate.  The assumed level of ability and knowledge is reasonable levels of proficiency in junior high school level science and math.  Leaving certificate (HSC) Physics is not an easy course, and is usually studied by higher ability students.  Some of the concepts, especially in the final section of the course, Special Relativity, are complex.  This is a high school level course, but one aimed at high ability leaving certificate students.

There is little assumed knowledge, apart from a general familiarity with science and math, such as that provided by junior (years 7 to 10) high school.  This is a Senior High School Level course, it is an introduction to concepts such as gravity, projectile motion, orbital mechanics, how rockets work and relativity,
