Course synopsis

This course covers introduction to physic and science which are force and motion, circular motion, work, power and energy, electrostatic, magnetism and electric current and resistance. Fundamental physics is combined with problem solving and engineering skills through suitable experiments. This course will expose the students to the elements and principles of basic concepts of physics and its application.
