PHYS 1401 College Physics I

3 lec/3 lab (4 Cr.) This is a 4 semester hour course which is an algebra/trigonometry-level approach toward physics for students preparing for medical, dental, or other science-related fields. Topics include fundamental principles of physics, using algebra and trigonometry; the principles and applications of classical mechanics and thermodynamics, including harmonic motion, mechanical waves and sound, physical systems, Newton’s Laws of Motion, and gravitation and other fundamental forces; with emphasis on problem solving. Laboratory activities will reinforce fundamental principles of physics, using algebra and trigonometry; the principles and applications of classical mechanics and thermodynamics, including harmonic motion, mechanical waves and sound, physical systems, Newton’s Laws of Motion, and gravitation and other fundamental forces; emphasis will be on problem solving.
Pre-requisite: MATH 1314 – College Algebra and MATH 1316 – Plane Trigonometry or MATH 2312/2412 Pre-Calculus
