# PHYS 103 - Introduction to Physics

Basic concepts in physics and their mathematical framework including problem solving techniques, experimental measurements, and simple data analysis. Topics include force, energy, momentum, density, pressure, waves, dimensional analysis, measurement, precision, and estimation; and power, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions.

Assessment Level(s): MATH 050 . One hour lecture, two hours laboratory each week. Formerly PHYS 010.

2 semester hours

May not be taken concurrently with MATH 017  or MATH 020  or MATH 045  without appropriate Math assessment score.

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

• Develop strategies to solve physics problems involving forces, mechanical energy, momentum, density, pressure, oscillations, and waves.
• Apply basic algebra to identify and solve problems involving power, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
• Use basic vector properties and perform basic vector operations.
• Identify, convert, and use appropriate SI units.
• Generate and analyze experimental data including correlating precision, uncertainty and significant figures.
