This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The course "PHYS1110 Engineering Physics: Mechanics and Thermodynamics" is pre-assigned for CUHK engineering students who have studied Physics in secondary school. Covered topics: Vectors, Force and Motion, KE and work, PE and conservation of Energy, Momentum and Impulse, Rotation and Moment, Equilibrium, Fluid, Oscillation, Wave and Sound.
Course highlights:
The content will become much more difficult after the first few lessons because of a lot of new concept being taught in the Rotation, Fluid, Oscillation, Wave chapters. The mean of the quizzes and exam are actually quite low, but you should try your best to revise all the course materials! Also you can bring a cheat sheet for the quizzes and exam. The pace of the course is so fast that I almost forgot all the things newly learned in the course (e.g. Bermoulli's Equation, Young's modulus). Nevertheless, this can give a brief idea of mechanical concepts that may reappear in later engineering courses.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
