APHYS111

Physics in Context

This is an introductory paper in physics for students who have not studied physics or mathematics at NCEA level 2 or 3. It is intended to support a major in other science subjects. Emphasis is placed on describing everyday physics concepts using correct terminology. Examples of physics in action are drawn from many science areas. Topics include Newton's laws of motion, electricity & magnetism, the structure of matter & the universe, waves and heat. This paper provides a route into the applied physics minor.
