What Will You Learn?

The study of the secrets of the universe. With its goal of enlightening humanity about the mechanics of the universe, physics is one of the most fascinating disciplines you can hope to learn about.

Although a complex subject, the Physics for Beginners Diploma Course provides information that is complex enough that you will feel you have learned a significant amount, but you won’t require any prior knowledge to embark on the course.

The course begins by introducing the main principles of physics. From there, we’ll learn about the metrics of bodies in motion, how to calculate vectors, the three laws of Isaac Newton, and how we define and quantify forces. We’ll gain an understanding of how acceleration and other factors work in a uniform circular motion and discover Kepler’s Laws about planets and their orbits.

The Physics for Beginners Diploma Course explains momentum and collisions, as you discover how energy and objects respond to different types of physical interactions, followed by a look at the various forms of energy. We’ll examine harmonic motion and equilibrium and consider the forces at work in rotational motion.

We’ll learn the fundamental electrical principles – gaining an understanding of DC circuits, current, voltage, and various laws governing electricity. You’ll also improve your knowledge of waves, including sound and electromagnetic waves. You will also find out more about radiation energy as it relates to waves and other concepts.

The course concludes with an exploration of the application of physics in the real world.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Learn about the metrics of bodies in motion and quantifying forces
  • Understand uniform circular motion
  • Become familiar with momentum, collisions, harmonic motion, equilibrium, and rotational motion
  • Learn the fundamentals of electrical principles
  • Improve your knowledge of waves, including sound and electromagnetic waves
  • Discover radiation energy
  • Explore the application of physics in the real world

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
