Physics 1201A/B


An introductory laboratory-based course in physics covering the foundational principles of kinematics, force and motion, energy, linear momentum, rotational motion, torque, equilibrium, angular momentum, geometric optics and optical instruments. Fundamental physics concepts are introduced with examples in physical, biological, and medical processes to develop students’ problem-solving skills.

Antirequisite(s): Physics 1101A/B, Physics 1401A/B, Physics 1501A/B, the former Physics 1028A/B, the former Physics 1301A/B.

Pre-or Corequisite(s): Grade 12U Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U) or Mathematics 0110A/B.

Extra Information: 3 lecture hours, 3 laboratory/tutorial hours. Note: This course, together with Physics 1202A/B, is a suitable prerequisite for modules having an introductory physics requirement (including modules in the Faculty of Science, modules offered by the basic Medical Science departments, and professional schools requiring a calculus-based laboratory course in physics).
