Physics of Mechanical, Gaseous, and Fluid Systems. A Study Guide of the Science and Engineering Technician Curriculum.
Dixon, Peggy; And Others
This study guide is part of a program of studies entitled Science and Engineering Technician (SET) Curriculum. The SET Curriculum integrates elements from the disciplines of chemistry, physics, mathematics, mechanical technology, and electronic technology. The objective of this curriculum development project is to train technicians in the use of electronic instruments and their applications. This guide provides part of the content of the physics component of the curriculum. The document introduces basic concepts such as length (distance), time, mass, weight, measurement, and basic electrical concepts. Other topics include the following: (1) translational motion; (2) rational motion; (3) temperature and heat; (4) properties of gases and liquids; and (5) sound and wave motion. (Author/SK)
