Previously known as Physics 101. This is mostly a rehash of highschool physics and covers Optics, Newtonian Mechanics, Thermodynamics and some Quantum (if I remember correctly).
It is the opinion of several students that the lectures (at least for Optics) are insufficient to understand the topic or answer the questions; reference to the textbook will be necessary. The textbook is Fundamentals of Physics, by Halliday, Resnick and Walker.
The unit has several compulsory labs. These labs consist of 4 marks. The marks are allocated for attempt/success in completing the lab. 1 is lost if you can't be bothered to do the prelab - which can usually be done from trivial textbook reading or googling for a simple answer.
