PHYS 210 - Physics I: Mechanics & Heat

Credit Hours: 4
Lecture Hours: 3
Laboratory Hours: 3

Prerequisite(s): MATH 210  or permission of the instructor

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): MATH 210  (if not taken as prerequisite)

This is the first calculus-based physics course for science and engineering students. Emphasis is placed on mechanics, i.e., kinematics, kinetics, work-energy, and impulse- momentum. An introduction to wave motion and thermodynamics is provided.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Students will demonstrate understanding of the methods scientists use to explore natural phenomena, including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation, evaluation of evidence, and employment of mathematical analysis.
  2. Students will demonstrate application of scientific data, concepts, and models in one of the natural sciences.
