Unit Code: FIS302 / FIS402

Unit Title: Physics

This Unit provides students with basic concepts and knowledge in general physics. Topics covered include concepts and applications in kinematics, dynamics, gravitation, energy, momentum and heat. These topics are delivered through classroom lectures (theory) and laboratory practicals. The practicals involve laboratory experiments and report writing. The Unit is designed to give students the opportunity to develop an understanding of general physics, enhance problem solving skills and apply general physics in fisheries studies and in everyday life situations.
