PH 2800 - General Physics I


(3)
Fall semester

An introduction to physics for students majoring in science or interested in science-related programs such as pre-med and other healthcare pre-professional programs. This course will employ calculus as needed and emphasize the scientific method and physical reasoning. Topics covered include: measurement, kinematics in one and two dimension, dynamics and Newton’s Laws, gravitation interactions, work and energy, momentum and rotational motion. Emphasis will be placed on conceptual understanding prior to the mathematical application of physics problems. Students will be expected to demonstrate conceptual and applied understanding of physics principles through class discourse, problem solving, and written assessment.

Prerequisite or Concurrent: MT 1800 - Calculus I .
Corequisite: PH 2810 .
