**DESCRIPTION & OBJECTIVES**.

This course also provides students an insight of the principles of waves as carriers of energy including sound and optical waves mainly and vector analysis, Work, Power. Students also learn how to collide two masses by conservation of law of energy and momentum. This course also provides the students with a broad understanding of the physical principles of the oscillations, to help them develop critical thinking and quantitative reasoning skills, to empower them to think creatively and critically about scientific problems and experiments (thought as well real-life). A student studying this course will understand classical as well modern physics and will also acquire the skills to apply principles to new and unfamiliar problems. Students are encouraged to share their thinking with teachers and peers and to examine different problem-solving strategies, in the said field.GS
