This is a basic course of Physics which focuses on the evolution of Physics starting from 1800s and up to the time of Sir Albert Einstein.

This course discusses on how Physics developed before the contributions of Einstein and theories of wave theory of light, electromagnetism, electromagnetic induction and so on as well as the theories developed by Sir Albert Einstein, his career and personal life and most importantly, his theory of relativity.

**Assessment**

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.

**Certification**

Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:
