PHY 121 - University Physics
(4 cr.) This calculus-based physics course examines classical Newtonian physics from kinematics, the study of motion, to dynamics, the study of why motion occurs. Topics include Newton's laws, conservation of energy and momentum, torque, equilibrium of static bodies and fluids, and thermal properties of matter. Through experimentation, computer modeling and group problem-solving, students apply these principles to predict the outcome of a number of reality-based and open-ended problems. (6 studio-lab hrs.) Prerequisite: MA 141, MA 141H, MA 141 or MA 151; Minimum grade C-; Every Year, Fall and Spring
