Learning Outcomes:

On completion of this module students should be able to: (1) Explain the topics covered in the physical world including, for example, mechanics, fluids, electricity, heat and heat transfer (2) Use the equations to solve a wide range of problems (3) Apply the topics in the physical world to examples in Agriculture. (4) Estimate physical quantities and calculate these quantities in a range of units used in practice. (5) Relate physics to particular safety issues in the professional area relatyed to their chosen area of study.

Indicative Module Content:

Approaches to Teaching and Learning:
Students are expected to attend lectures, tutorials and laboratory (in person) sessions and to prepare for all by appropriate study (this will include using books and online VLE and other resources). Thus the student should be able to engage fully in discussions and other interactions in lectures, tutorials and labs. Students are further expected to prepare for continuous assessment assignments via study and, as needed, discussion with the lecturer
