PHY1053C - General Physics I with Lab


Credits: 4
Prerequisites: MAC 1105  or MAC 1140  or MAC 1147  
PHY 1053C is the first of a two-semester survey of non-calculus based physics for science and pre-professional majors. This course presents mechanics, heat, and mechanical waves. Topics covered include: measurements, accelerated motion, Newton’s laws, work and energy, momentum, conservation laws, gas laws, one- and two-dimensional motion, rotational motion, motion of rigid bodies, mechanical properties of matter, temperature, thermal properties of matter, thermodynamics, wave motion, sound. The laboratory experiences are designed to enhance the lecture part of the course, as well as to cover various laboratory techniques. Some prior knowledge of trigonometry is strongly recommended.(3 hours lecture, 2 hours laboratory, and 1-hour problem-solving session per week)
