Campus: 2 x 1 hour classes per week, 2 x 1 hour seminars per week, 5 x 3 hour practical per trimester. Students must attend and participate in compulsory activities for this unit at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester.

Cloud (online): Learning experiences are via CloudDeakin. 1 x 8 hour practical per trimester. Students must attend and participate in mandatory activities at the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus on the particular scheduled day during the trimester intensive week.

Content

The unit will commence with a calculus treatment of kinematics of motion in one, two and three dimensions, including parabolic motion. The application of Newton's laws to a wide variety of phenomena will be investigated and the concepts of work, energy and the conservation laws discussed. Rotational kinematics and dynamics will be introduced, including the concepts of moment of inertia, torque, moment of a force. Other topics to be covered are vectors, statics, centre of mass, centroids systems of particles, collisions, oscillations, fluid mechanics and dynamics.

Assessment

Examination 60%, laboratory work 20%, two problem-based assignments (10% each) 20%.  To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve an overall mark of at least 40% in the examination and compulsory attendance is required by all students to unit-specific activities at Waurn Ponds (Geelong). These unit-specific activities may be undertaken either at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester or during a single day of unit-specific activities scheduled during the trimester intensive week.
