Physics, Grade 12, University Preparation (SPH4U)

This course enables students to deepen their 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 also explore the wave nature of light, quantum mechanics, and special relativity. You will further develop their 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.
