Introduction:

Systematically introduce the basic concepts for university physics in mechanics, including the concept of vectors, motions in 2 dimensions and 3 dimensions, and the relation between force and motion described by Newton’s three fundamental laws. It will lay a solid foundation for the students to start the physics courses at the university level.

本課程將系統講授大學物理的力學,包括矢量、運動學、以及運動與受力的關係。牛頓三大定律在平動與轉動中的應用、動量與能量守恆等關鍵物理知識將是本課程強調的重點。本課程將為學生的大學物理學習打下堅實的基礎。
