Subject: 
Physics (PHY)
Credits 
4.00

The purpose of this course is to give the student in engineering technology a thorough study of the basic principles of physics. Topics covered in this course are systems of measurement; dynamics (including motion, acceleration, forces producing motion, work, energy, and power); momentum and the conservation laws; statics (including concurrent and non-concurrent forces); and fluids (including properties of gases, fluid pressure, density, buoyancy, and hydraulics). Previous successful completion of a course in physics is highly desirable.
