PHY 2001 - Fundamentals of Experimental Physics

This course is a one-semester college physics laboratory course in classical physics, including kinematics, dynamics, energy conservation, gravitation, oscillations, waves, fluids and thermodynamics. The nature of physics as an experimental science is emphasized. We subject our theories to careful testing in the laboratory following the scientific method of observation, hypothesis-formulation, experimental testing, measurements, data analysis and the writing of lab reports. This course is designed for both science and non-science majors interested in understanding the central role of science in civilization. Co-requisite: PHY 2002L, unless transfer student has already satisfied requirement in Scientific World category. (Not open to students who have taken PHY 1003 or PHY 2003). Enrollment Requirements: COREQUISITE: PHY 2002L. Open to PATH or PWOP Student Group. Not open to students who have completed PHY 1003, PHY 2003, or PHY 3010. Requirement Designation: Required Core - Life and Physical Sciences.
