Pre-requisites: Physical Science 20 required, strong math skills from Pre-calculus 20 highly recommended. A 30 level math is advantageous but not required.
Description: In this class we continue from ideas presented in Science 10 pertaining to the analysis of objects in motion referred to as Kinematics, then study why objects move by applying Newton's Laws and Newtonian Mechanics. Conservation theories of Momentum and Energy are covered as well as Field Theory (gravitational, electric and magnetic). Ideas from Modern Physics are introduced and may include contributions of Einstein, Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, Nuclear Physics or others.
