PHY 2002L - Fundamentals of Physics: Theory and Practice

This course is a one-semester college physics lecture course on classical physics, including kinematics, dynamics, energy conservation, gravitation, oscillations, waves, fluids and thermodynamics. The interpretation of physical problems in mathematical terms is emphasized, with examples from everyday life, such as ballistics, forensic medicine, satellite orbits, the human ear, engines and heat pumps. Emphasis is also placed on mathematical structures that arise in a variety of different physical scenarios. This course is designed for both science and non-science majors interested in understanding the central role of science in civilization. Co-requisite: PHY 2001 unless transfer student has already satisfied requirement in Life and Physical Sciences category. (Not open to students who have taken PHY 1003 or PHY 2003). Enrollment Requirements: COREQUISITE: PHY 2001. Open to PATH or PWOP Student Group. Not open to students who have completed PHY 1003, PHY 2003, or PHY 3010. Requirement Designation: Flexible Core - Scientific World.
