IT219 Physics for IT

Physics for IT: This course aims at covering the fundamental physics principles behind computer and network technologies.  It is divided into three main sections. The first section focuses on electronics and digital circuits, semiconductors and the use of transistors and Integrated circuits in building digital circuits, digital electronics and the binary system. The second section focuses on electromagnetic waves, the different types of signals, frequency spectrum, signal propagation and amplification, analogue/digital conversion and modulation techniques. The third section covers force, motors and magnetic fields, conversion of mechanical/electrical energy, and motion principles.
