General Physics I

Non-calculus based physics intended for credit in engineering technology courses. Use PH-261 for electrical, computer and software engineering courses. Mechanics: units, conversion factors: vector diagrams, translational equilibrium, friction, torque and rotational equilibrium: uniformly accelerated motion, projectiles: Newton's Law, work energy and power: kinetic and potential energy, conservation of energy: impulse and momentum. Heat: temperature scales, thermal properties of matter, heat and temperature change, heat and change of phase, physics of heat transfer; applications. Prerequisite: MA-114. Students completing this course may not enroll in PH-261 for additional credit. (2-2-3)
