Amcanion cyffredinol

1) To provide students with a basic knowledge of atomic physics, materials, heat and gases and oscillations and waves 2) To introduce students to laboratory practice and procedures with an emphasis on the need to work with regard to the safety of themselves and others 3) To prepare students for the deployment of the knowledge they have gained in their undergraduate degree studies in Engineering or Computer Science

Cynnwys cwrs

This module provides the appropriate foundation in Physics knowledge and related practical skills to enable students to be successful in their undergraduate studies in the fields of engineering and computer science. Many students will come from educational systems where there has been a strong emphasis placed on the study of sciences but it cannot be assumed that this will apply more generally. It is important therefore that the module ensures an appropriate level of scientific background required to cope with level 4 and beyond of an engineering or computer science first degree programme. The main topics covered are: Waves Properties of waves Sound; oscillators Reflection and refraction Interference and diffraction Electromagnetic waves; wave speed formulae Matter Materials – Strength of solids; Elastic behaviour; Structure of solids; Fluids; Non-viscous flow; Viscous flow; Surfaces Heat and Gases – Temperature; Heat capacities; Thermal coefficient; Thermal conduction; Thermal radiation; Ideal gases; Thermodynamics of ideal gases; Real gases; Vapours; Entropy and equilibrium Structure of the atom – Properties of the electron; Free electrons in metals; Electrons within atoms; Energy emitted by electrons; Properties of the nucleus; Radioactivity, Fission and Fusion

Meini Prawf

da
