Coursework is work performed by students or trainees for the purpose of learning. Coursework may be specified and assigned by teachers, or by learning guides in self-taught courses. Coursework can encompass a wide range of activities, including practice, experimentation, research, and writing (e.g., dissertations, book reports, and essays). In the case of students at universities, high schools and middle schools, coursework is often graded and the scores are combined with those of separately assessed exams to determine overall course scores. In contrast to exams, students may be allotted several days or weeks to complete coursework, and are often allowed to use text books, notes, and the Internet for research.
In universities, students are usually required to perform coursework to broaden knowledge, enhance research skills, and demonstrate that they can discuss, reason and construct practical outcomes from learned theoretical knowledge. Sometimes coursework is performed by a group so that students can learn both how to work in groups and from each other.
Hi there. I start my final year of my computer science degree this September and, alongside other modules, will do an independent final year project. I have not had very much CS experience outside my degree so I am a bit unsure what would be feasible for me while not being too trivial such that...
(a) Write down an expression for the velocity field corresponding to uniform
rotation. Find the vorticity corresponding to this flow.
(b) Consider a small perturbation u' to the state of uniform rotation with angular
velocity Ω, which has the form of a plane harmonic wave
u'= A exp i(k·x−ω t) +...

Hello guys,
I'm doing my physics coursework on kepler's third law and I'm finding the minimum mass and semi-major axis of a unknown planet. I have the following data:
Stellar mass Mstar = 1.31 ± 0.05 Msun
Orbital period P = 2.243752 ± 0.00005 days
Radial velocity semi-amplitude: V = 993.0 ±...
Hey all,
I am trying to do a read through on antenna theory (using Constantine's book) and am wondering if there is any online course that might follow the book or serve as a good reference. I have found pretty good success in supplementing a book with an online course in the past (i.e...
I transferred into my school's physics program with all my core curriculum done, so I only have to take physics and math courses to finish my degree at this point. The physics program at my school is pretty small so pretty much all courses are only offered in either the fall or spring, and there...
Homework Statement
How to calculate initial tension or pretension in a system of two parallel springs.
F=5.33213N
K1+K2=53.0597
x=0.095
Individual springs have initial tension of 0.25N so I would expect an answer of 0.5N but I can't get there.
Homework Equations
F=(k1+k2)x
The Attempt at a...
Find the spring constant by timing simple harmonic motion. I have done a Hooke's law experiment already and found out about initial tension. What I learned was:
force ≠ spring constant x displacement
force = initial tension + (spring constant x displacement)
So using F=kx would not give an...

Hi there.
For my A2 physics coursework I have been doing an experiment into stokes law, in which I dropped ball bearings of various diameters into a tube filled with a liquid, worked out their terminal velocities and then used Stokes Law to calculate the viscosity of the...
