|PHYS 1161 - Physics 1|
Covers calculus-based physics. Offers the first semester of a two-semester integrated lecture and laboratory sequence intended primarily for science students. Covers Newtonian mechanics and fluids. Emphasizes the underlying concepts and principles. Takes applications from a wide variety of fields, such as life sciences and medicine, astro- and planetary physics, and so on. Includes topics such as forces, torque and static equilibrium, one-dimensional and three-dimensional motion, Newton’s laws, dynamics friction, drag, work, energy and power, momentum and collisions, rotational dynamics, oscillations, pressure, fluids, and gravity. Prereq. MATH 1241, MATH 1251, or MATH 1341 (the latter may be taken concurrently); physics, biochemistry, chemistry, and mathematics majors and physics combined majors only. Coreq. PHYS 1162 and PHYS 1163.
