PHY 121 General Physics I

Credits: 4.00

This course, designed for liberal arts and life science majors, is an algebra-based approach to the experimental and analytical study of Newtonian mechanics and thermal physics, emphasizing one-and two-dimensional kinematics, Newton's laws of motion, energy, momentum, conservation theorems, center of mass, rotational dynamics, static equilibrium, thermal properties of materials, calorimetry, the laws of thermodynamics, and heat engines. This course meets General Education Core Goal 2: Analytic Skills; and Core Goal 8: Physical and Life Sciences.
