Just few days ago, I went to a local MPH and was hanging around.
I picked up a Physics reference book for matriculation for their 1st semester.
To my surprise, I find that they learn quite a lot of things.
Some of the things are what I learn in my 1st year of university.
Under the Fluid Mechanics section, there are Bernoulli's equation. I think they have steady flow energy equation as well.
Under the Thermodynamics section, they have quite some formulas in it and they learn to draw P-V diagram.
And there are 16 chapters for ONE semester.
I did SAM last year, and 16 chapters (different with matriculation) is what we can cover throughout whole year. And we don't learn Fluid Mechanics, nor Thermodynamics.
I study in University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus. I learned Bernoulli's equation and SFEE in my Fluid Mechanics 1 during my Year 1 and some of what I learn in my Thermodynamics 1 appear in the reference book as well.
Cambridge A-Level does not have Fluid Mechanics in the syllabus and only a small introduction for Thermodynamics only.
I am doubtful. Why is there such depth covered in matriculation?
I thought everyone is saying matriculation covers much lesser stuff?
Anyone from matriculation willing to clear my doubt?
Physics for Matriculation, They study some mad things
