To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
Topics covered include heat, wave phenomena, electrostatics, electric circuits, magnetism and electromagnetic induction. This course is equivalent to general level second term Physics courses at BCIT.
** IMPORTANT INFORMATION - READ CAREFULLY AND READ IN FULL ** This course will commence with learning delivered in an ONLINE format. The delivery of this course does not require students to be physically on campus. A computer with access to the internet (Learning Hub) is required. The course instructor will communicate with students through BCIT’s Learning Hub therefore it is important that students sign on to the Learning Hub prior to the course start date to review any posted messages. Class will not be held on Monday, August 3rd (BC Day). Any student who withdraws from the course AFTER it has begun will not be permitted to re-register and re-join the online learning activity this pts 202020 term.
Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:
Apply the concepts of calorimetry to compute temperature changes, heat loss/gain in conduction and radiation processes, thermal expansion and thermal stress in technological contexts.
Demonstrate how vibrations and wave concepts apply, predict modes of vibration in simple systems, and explain the use of sound waves in non-destructive testing.
Verify Ohm's Law for DC current and voltage and compute resistivity.
Analyze electric and magnetic forces and simple electric circuits.
Effective as of Fall 2003
