In this course students investigate concepts related to modern physics such as quantum mechanics, relativity, and nuclear physics. Students will analyze motion in one and two dimensions and the forces behind the motion. They will investigate work, power, energy and efficiency within a system as well as the law of conservation of energy. Lastly, students will explore gravitational, electric, and magnetic fields and their interactions. Unique to the new science curriculum, students will also be able to complete a student-directed study to explore a topic of personal interest relevant to Physics 30. Please remember, good math skills are important for success in this course.
