The information presented here is taken from teaching architectural technology in the 2nd Year of the UCT Bachelor of Architectural Studies programme in 2010.
MODERN MECHANICS: Matter and interactions, conservation laws, the momentum principle, atomic nature of matter, conservation of energy, energy in macroscopic systems, energy quantization, multiparti
The lab focuses on an introduction to computational methods, in support of the Classical and Quantum Mechanics lectures.
VECTOR FIELDS IN PHYSICS: Vector calculus; div, grad, curl; line-, surface- and volume integrals; Gauss' Theorem; Stokes' Theorem; simple applications to fluid dynamics and electromagnetism STATIS
CLASSICAL MECHANICS: Review of Newton’s laws, constraints, d’Aelmbert principle, Lagrangian formulation of mechanics, conservation laws, applications, central forces, planetary motion,
VIBRATIONS AND WAVES: Harmonic oscillations, damped and forced oscillations, resonance, Fourier analysis, harmonic chains, waves, dispersion, interference, diffraction.
A first-year laboratory course based on Modern Mechanics and Electromagnetism.
The first half of this course provides students with the essential tools and skills that are required for dealing successfully with physics at first-year university level.
Python is a programming language which is increasingly being used for computation in physics. Why is this? * Python is easy to learn.
Lectures slides from the 15 lecture Parallel And Multicore Computing module presented to the Computer Science Honours class (=4th year).
