Unit Title: Basics of electricity and magnetism
Prerequisite: A pass in PHY401 or Year 12 Physics examination or equivalent
Semester 1: Not offered Semester 2: Offered on face-face mode
This unit builds on the physics concepts studied in PHY301 and PHY302 or Year 12 Physics learned at secondary schools throughout the country. It is also built from PHY401- Mechanics Heat and Waves, which is done in semester 1. This unit is the continuation of unit PHY401 and if successfully completed should enable you to enroll in PHY501and PHY502 degree units in the Bachelor programmes. The unit also provides a good foundation to do Bachelor of Science degree programmes majoring in Physics. Topics include D.C. Electricity, Electrostatics, Magnetism, Electromagnetic Induction, Atomic Physics, Nuclear Physics and Basic Electronic.
