Unit 5C Applied Physics

This option looks at how rotating objects behave under different conditions.  This is particularly important to those who are designing rotary machines.  You will see how the equations of rotary motion are very similar in form to the equations of linear motion.

It also looks at the Laws of Thermodynamics and how these apply to heat engines.  These link to the behaviour of gases that you studied in Unit 5.

This option will be of particular interest to students who want to study Engineering as a degree.
