Physics 20 (5 Credits)

This highly academic program is designed to study matter and energy and their interactions. This program emphasizes the context of science by considering the interrelationship among science, technology and society. Physics 20 & 30 helps students understand the physics principles behind the natural events they experience and the technology they use in their daily lives.

The four units of study covered are:

  • Kinematics
  • Dynamics
  • Circular Motion, Work and Energy
  • Oscillatory Motion and Mechanical Waves

Laboratory work will reinforce the theoretical concepts

Physics 30 (5 credits)

This academic program is designed to study matter and energy and their interactions. This program emphasizes the context of science by considering the interrelationship among science, technology and society. Physics 20 & 30 helps students understand the physics principles behind the natural events they experience and the technology they use in their daily lives.

The four units of study covered are:

    • Momentum and Impulse
    • Forces and Fields
    • Electromagnetic Radiation
    • Atomic Physics

    Laboratory work will reinforce the theoretical concepts

    Note:  Completion of Physics 30 requires the writing of a provincial diploma examination and this course is a prerequisite for many science based programs at post-secondary institutions.
