Any student who is not formally registered when the course begins at 9:00am on Monday, July 15th will not be permitted to late register and attend classes without the course Instructor’s written (email) approval to the student AND to the Physics department. Once the course is full there will be NO over-capacity registration allowed and the Physics department DOES NOT maintain a waitlist. Any student who withdraws from the course AFTER it has begun will not be permitted to re-register and re-join the class this pts 201920 term. This course is offered once per year. The next offering will be pts 202020 term. Visit the BCIT Part-Time Studies Key Registration Dates webpage for course registration information. PHYS 2301 is not available as an online course at BCIT.
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
