Fundamentals of Physics I with Calculus

Course Number: 
PHY 2041
Spring Fall
Physics (PHY)

This course is an alternative for PHY 1041. It is intended to give the students in engineering technology who have demonstrated an above-average ability in verbal and mathematics skills a course with the application of calculus as its math component. Those skills are shown through science preparation, algebra, trigonometry, and basic physics. Topics covered in this course include system 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); fluids (including properties of gases, fluid pressure, density, buoyancy and hydraulics). Previous successful completion of a course in physics is highly desirable.

3 hours of lecture, 3 hours of lab per week
