General Information

Overview

Aviation Physics will introduce you to areas of applied physics relevant to aviation. You will discover the theory behind mechanics, AC and DC circuits, fluid dynamics and waves, and their practical application to aviation. Further, you will apply this theory to aerodynamics, aircraft systems, and navigation. The theory will be used to aid calculations in flight planning, performance, and loading.

Pre-requisites or Co-requisites

There are no requisites for this unit.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Residential Schools

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Have your say

Feedback

Additional support was provided to assist students to understand the mathematical application in physics.

Recommendation

Students informed that the lecturer was willing to provide additional support to assist with mathematical applications that supported their learning. The practice will continue in the next offering.

Feedback from Have your say

Feedback

The tutorials greatly helped students to understand the topic.

Recommendation

The practice will continue in the next offering.

Feedback from Have your say

Feedback

Most of the topics are relevant in one way or another, there need to be clear linkages to aviation.

Recommendation

Students informed that the topic should clearly be linked to aviation rather than understanding the physics principles only. We will add more content in light of aviation in the next offering.

Feedback from Have your say

Feedback

The current textbook is not so appropriate.

Recommendation

Students reported that more engagement through the textbook would have helped their study of lectures and tutorials. We will select an appropriate textbook in the next offering.

Feedback from Have your say

Feedback

Too much of contents delivered in a short time.

Recommendation

The contents were too much in this unit. We will revise the contents in the next offering.
