PHY-1010 Introductory Physics I

Credits 4
Fundamental concepts and basic laws of mechanics, heat, and thermodynamics using a noncalculus approach. Not recommended for science/engineering majors. Science general education class.
Prerequisite(s): MAT-1350  with grade of C or higher. EGL-1010  completed or concurrent. 
3 class/1 rec/2 lab hours.
(Not offered summer.)

Course Outcomes
  1. Distinguish between scalar and vector physical quantities.
  2. Apply the laws of motion to solve kinematics problems for motions in one and two dimensions.
  3. Apply the concepts of force, gravitation, momentum, and energy to solve problems in basic mechanics and thermodynamics.
  4. Use the concepts of pressure, buoyancy, and continuity to solve problems in basic fluid mechanics.
  5. Investigate the behavior of physical systems in the lab and report any discrepancy between the experimental behavior/results and the expected behavior/results.
