PHYS& 114 General Physics I w/Lab

5 credits
This course covers kinematics, motion in two-dimensions, force and motion, work and energy, momentum and collisions, circular motion, gravitation, rotational motion, and solids. Includes laboratory.

Prerequisites: MATH 098  or MATH 099  or MATH 099X  (or placement into MATH& 107  or higher)

Course Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Define the basic concepts of introductory mechanical physics
  • Describe physical and quantitative relationships between kinetic and potential energy; impulse and momentum; force, mass, and acceleration; inertia and mass; work, power, and energy
  • Express, with the use of graphing techniques and analytical means, the relationships among displacement velocity and acceleration
  • Solve projectile and force problems using vector analysis
  • Define Newton’s Laws of Motion and analytically illustrate how they determine motion in “real-life” examples
  • Apply information learned to team laboratory and demonstration exercises

Total Hours: 60 Theory (Lecture) Hours: 40 Guided Practice (Lab or Clinical) Hours: 20
