Physics in Context - Ahupūngao o te Ao - APHYS111 (2023)

This is an introductory paper in physics for students who have not studied physics or mathematics at NCEA level 2 or 3. It is intended to support a major in other science subjects. Emphasis is placed on describing everyday physics concepts using correct terminology. Examples of physics in action are drawn from many science areas. Topics include Newton's laws of motion, electricity & magnetism, the structure of matter & the universe, waves and heat.

He whakataki tenei pepa i te tuapapa o te matai ahupungao mo te hunga tauira kihai i ako i te matai ahopungao, pangarau ranei ki te kura tuarua. He tautoko hoki i te tauira e aru ana i tetahi kaupapa putaiao matua. Ko te whainga matua he whakamarama i nga huatau ahupungao o ia ra me te tika o nga rerenga kupu. Ko etahi kaupapa he mea to mai i te ahupungao o ia ra, ina ra ko nga ture o Newton, e pa ana ki te neke, te hiko me te auto; ko te hanga o te matu me te ao tukupu, tae atu ana ki te huinga ngaru me te pokaka.
