PHSC 0125 - Physics I

Credits: 4

A calculus-based introduction to physics. Classical mechanics forms the core of the course. Topics to be covered include kinematics and dynamics of motion in one, two, and three dimensions, work, energy, conservation laws, rotational motion, static equilibrium, gravitation, and thermodynamics. The use of elementary calculus to solve problems involving trajectories, work, and one-dimensional potentials will be stressed. Three hours lecture, one hour discussion, and two hours of laboratory work per week.

Prerequisites: MATH 0105  or concurrent registration.
