PHY* 121 General Physics I


Credits: 4

This is an algebra-based introduction to the basic concepts of classical mechanics. Major topics will include Newton’s laws, motion in one, two, and three dimensions, periodic motion, thermodynamics, energy, hydrodynamics, and an introduction to material science. The course will emphasize applications to “real world” problems. Laboratories are designed to allow the student to visualize the important concepts introduced in lecture and to increase student understanding of the scientific process. There will be three hours of lecture and three hours of lab each week.
Prerequisite: MAT* 137  or MAT* 186 ; MAT* 186  may be taken concurrently
