Courses

PHYS 1112 Physics I: Mechanics & Heat

Course description

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.

Prerequisites

MATH 1910, MATH 1120 or MATH 1220.

Corequisites

Recommended coreg in MATH 1920 in order to continue with PHYS 2213 the following semester. Coreg with MATH 1910 may be allowed by instructor in exceptional cases, but continuation in PHYS 2213 may then have to be deferred until MATH 1920 is completed
