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.
Section 1: Introduction to Projectile Motion
Section 4: Half-flight and Incomplete Projectile Motion
Section 6: Circular Motion in a Variety of Situations
Section 7: Quantitative Analysis of Circular Motion
Section 8: Torque
Motions in Gravitational Fields
Section 10: Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion
Section 12: Low Earth and Geostationary Satellites
