    Remarks:
  • For students in the 4Y programs
  • PHYS 1111 and PHYS 1112 target students who have learned the most basic knowledge in physics in high school. Students with more advanced physics background should consider taking PHYS 1151 or 1152. PHYS 1112 employs a calculus-based approach. Students without knowledge of calculus should take PHYS 1111 instead.
  • Exclusion: PHYS 1111, PHYS 1151, PHYS 1152, PHYS 1312
  • Prerequisite: (Level 3 or above in HKDSE 1/2x or in HKDSE 1x Physics) and Level 3 or above in HKDSE Mathematics Extended Module M1/M2
