PREREQUISITE(S): MATH 181 . PRE- or COREQUISITE(S): MATH 182  or consent of department. Three hours lecture, one hour discussion each week. Formerly PH 161.

3 semester hours

A calculus-based general physics course, required for students majoring in engineering or one of the physical sciences.

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

  • Apply scientific methods to investigate physical concepts associated with classical mechanics and thermodynamics.
  • Identify and apply physical principles and laws associated with classical mechanics and thermodynamics.
  • Integrate different concepts, laws and principles to explain practical applications in classical mechanics and thermodynamics.
  • Develop strategies to solve physics problems involving classical mechanics and thermodynamics.
  • Apply calculus techniques to solve problems involving classical mechanics and thermodynamics.
  • Build and analyze graphical representations of specific physical quantities and laws associated with classical mechanics and thermodynamics.
  • Use correct and complete quantitative analysis, use estimation and dimensional analysis, and draw correct and relevant conclusions related to classical mechanics and thermodynamics problems.
  • Identify reliable sources of information and use their content to answer conceptual mechanics and thermodynamics questions.
