PHYS 151 - General Physics I (3)

Prerequisites: MATH 120  
Corequisite: PHYS 151L  
All prerequisites must be completed with a minimum grade of “C” (2.00).
This course is the first trimester of a two-trimester course. The course uses algebra-based mathematics to introduce the study of fundamental concepts that describe the physical work through a series of lectures, hands-on activities, and demonstrations. Topics covered include measurements, kinematics, dynamics, work and energy, rotary motion, and fluids and thermodynamics. This course satisfies the requirement for a major or minor in physics. A lab fee will be assessed.
