Introduces students to physical laws and the application of these laws to the mechanics of motion.
- Relevant aspects of the academic skill of numeracy
- Describing motion using linear and angular kinematics
- Linear and angular kinetics
- Balance, stability and equilibrium
- Machines and free body diagrams
- Energy, work and power
- Linear and angular momentum, impulse, impacts and collisions
- Fluid dynamics aero- and hydrodynamics
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||apply the academic skill of numeracy in relevant mathematical operations|
|2||explain and apply concepts related to kinematics, kinetics, balance and machines|
|3||explain and apply concepts related to work, energy, momentum, impulse and fluid dynamics|
|4||integrate and apply musculoskeletal functional anatomy with biomechanical concepts as a whole in examples of human motion.|
