Module 5: Advanced Mechanics
Module 5: Advanced Mechanics is the first module of Year 12 HSC Physics. In this module, students build upon their knowledge of rectilinear and 2-dimensional motion from Year 11.
Students begin to examine applications of projectile and circular motion in various situations as well as mechanics in the context of space.
Inquiry question: How can models that are used to explain projectile motion be used to analyse and make predictions?
Inquiry question: Why do objects move in circles?
Motions in Gravitational Fields
Inquiry question: How does the force of gravity determine the motion of planets and satellites?
