Physics: from classical to quantum free course icon Level

Science, Maths & Technology 

Physics: from classical to quantum

This wide-ranging module teaches general physics with an emphasis both on the concepts and their basic numerical description, as well as their application. The module is presented in 25 units (plus a maths revision unit). It covers classical mechanics; electric and gravitational fields and potentials; electromagnetism and relativity; waves and optics; thermal and statistical physics; quantum physics and an introduction to its applications to solids, atoms and nuclei. Your problem-solving skills will be developed throughout the module and each unit is supported by animated diagrams, interactive graphs, online practical activities and audio/video clips.

Signals and perception: the science of the senses

This sensory neuroscience module uses fundamental concepts from biology, chemistry, physics and psychology to explain how we interact with our environment through the senses and is therefore an opportunity for you to study an interdisciplinary topic. For each of the senses, you'll investigate how sensation begins with a stimulus that is converted into an electrical impulse; how that is transmitted to the brain; and how the brain combines these messages ? to arrive at a 'perception of the stimulus'. The module is designed to be accessible to students pursuing a wide variety of degree studies.

Collisions and conservation laws free course icon Level

Science, Maths & Technology 

Collisions and conservation laws

This free course, Collisions and conservation laws, begins by explaining elastic and inelastic collisions and then goes on to show how collisions may be quantified using the conservation of linear momentum and of kinetic energy. Interactive animations are used to illustrate this behaviour and video examples discuss collisions in the world around us. Finally, this course looks at how the understanding of collisions must be modified when the speeds involved are close to the speed of light, using special relativity.

Describing motion along a line free course icon Level

Science, Maths & Technology 

Describing motion along a line

Motion is vital to life, and to science. This free course, Describing motion along a line, will help you to understand why classical motion is probably the most fundamental part of physics. You will examine motion along a line and the ways in which such motion can be represented, through the use of graphs, equations and differential calculus.
