Overview: In this unit, students study the nature and characteristics of electromagnetic radiation (EMR), using the wave and photon models of light. This unit builds on: Science 8, Unit C: Light and Optical Systems; Physics 20, Unit C: Circular Motion, Work and Energy;  Physics 30, Unit A: Momentum and Impulse and Unit B: Forces and Fields. A good knowledge of vectors is needed.

This unit prepares students for further study of EMR phenomena and the nature of matter in Unit D and for post-secondary studies in physics. This unit is worth 25% of the total mark for Physics 30.
