From this course students not only learn the basic concepts of physics, but also develop the skills to solve complicated problems in different fields such as dynamics, forces, the quantification and forms of energy (mechanical, sound, light, thermal, and electrical), and the way energy is transformed and transmitted. About 400 slides and hundreds of practice questions and answers are available. The topics cover the following 5 units detailed as follows:

1) Motion and Forces:  The relationship between forces and the acceleration of an object in linear motion. The effect of a net force on the linear motion of an object, and the effect in quantitative terms, using graphs, free-body diagrams, and vector diagrams.

2) Work, Energy and Power: The concepts of work, energy (kinetic energy, gravitational potential energy, and thermal energy and its transfer [heat]), energy transformations, efficiency, and power. Solve problems involving energy transformations and the law of conservation of energy.

3) Light and Geometric Optics: The properties of light and the principles underlying the transmission of light through a medium and from one medium to another. The properties of light through experimentation, and illustrate and predict the behavior of light through the use of ray diagrams and algebraic equations.

4) Wave and Sound: The properties of mechanical waves and sound and the principles underlying the production, transmission, interaction, and reception of mechanical waves and sound. The mechanical waves and sound produced in nature, and their contributions to entertainment and health. The safety of technologies that make use of mechanical waves and sound.

5) Electricity and Magnetism: The properties, physical quantities, principles, and laws related to electricity, magnetic fields, and electromagnetic induction. Characteristic properties of magnetic fields and electromagnetic induction

This course enables students to enhance their understanding of the concepts and theories of physics. With the prerequisite knowledge from Grade 11 Physics students study further the laws of dynamics and energy transformations, explore electrical, gravitational, and magnetic fields, investigate electromagnetic radiation and the interface between energy and matter. They will further develop learning skills through solving different levels of physical problems. About 500 slides and hundreds of practice questions and answers are available. The topics are detailed as follows:

1) Forces and Motion: Dynamics. The motion of objects in horizontal, vertical, and inclined planes, and the motion with reference to the forces acting on the objects.The motion in a plane. Solve problems involving the forces acting on an object in linear, projectile, and circular motion, with the aid of vectors, graphs, and free-body diagrams.

2) Work, Energy and Power. The concepts of work, energy, momentum, and the laws of conservation of energy and of momentum for objects moving in two dimensions.The laws of conservation of momentum and of energy (including elastic and inelastic collisions) through experiments or simulations. Solve problems involving these laws with the aid of vectors, graphs, and free-body diagrams.

3) Electric, Gravitational, and Magnetic Fields. The concepts, principles, and laws related to electric, gravitational, and magnetic forces and fields. The roles of evidence and theories in the development of scientific knowledge related to electric, gravitational, and magnetic fields.

4) The Wave Nature of Light. The wave model of electromagnetic radiation. Diffraction patterns, interference, and polarization. Phenomena involving light and colour, explain them in terms of the wave model of light.

5) Matter Energy Interface: The basic concepts of Einstein's special theory of relativity and of the development of models of matter, based on classical and early quantum mechanics, that involves an interface between matter and energy.
