PHYS 1112 Physics I: Mechanics & Heat
First course in a three semester introductory physics sequence. Covers the mechanics of particles with focus on kinematics, dynamics, conservation laws, central force fields, periodic motion. Mechanics of many-particle systems: center of mass, rotational mechanics of a rigid body, and static equilibrium. Temperature, heat, the laws of thermodynamics. At the level of University Physics, Vol. 1, by Young and Freedman. <i><b>Note:</b> This course is intended primarily for engineering students and prospective physics majors.</i>
Students interested in majoring in Engineering Physics or Physics, and who have a strong physics and mathematics background are encouraged to consider PHYS 1116.
MATH 1910, MATH 1120 or MATH 1220.
This is an extremely demanding course. Summer College students should have completed one year of high school physics and the equivalent of Mathematics 1110 (college-level calculus).
This course is open to all registrants, including undergraduates and Summer College students.
The next offering of this course is undetermined at this time.
