Physics (SPH4U)

Grade 12    1.0 Credit

Course type:    University Preparation

This course enables you to deepen your understanding of physics concepts and theories. You will continue your exploration of energy transformations and the forces that affect motion, and will investigate electrical, gravitational, and magnetic fields and electromagnetic radiation. You will explore the wave nature of light, quantum mechanics, and special relativity. You will further develop your scientific investigation skills, learning, for example, how to analyse, qualitatively and quantitatively, data related to a variety of physics concepts and principles. You will also consider the impact of technological applications of physics on society and the environment.
