    Credit Points: 3
    Year: 1
    Pre-requisite: Nil
    Co-requisite: Nil
    Module Aim(s): The module aims to impart students the concepts and principles in major areas of physics and develop students’ ability in scientific reasoning, for further study in building services engineering.
    Objectives: On completion of this Module, students are expected to be able to:
    1. predict the motion of general objects and critique any limitation and precision error resulting from model simplifications;
    2. analyse work done, kinetic and potential energy of physical systems and evaluate both isolated and non-isolated models using the concepts of conservation of energy;
    3. evaluate linear momentum and collisions of isolated and non-isolated systems in multiple dimensions as well as systems of many particles;
    4. analyse static equilibrium of a system of rigid objects and evaluate centre of gravity of irregular shaped object; and
    5. describe and analyse the oscillations of mechanical and sound waves, and apply the concept of superposition to describe the motions of standing waves in different elastic media.
