Student Outcomes/Competencies:
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
