PHYS 121 General Engineering Physics I • 6 Cr.
First in a three-course survey of physics for science and engineering majors. Course presents fundamental principles of mechanics, including motion, Newton's laws, work, energy, momentum, rotation, and gravity. Conceptual development and problem solving have equal emphasis. Laboratory work presents methods of experimental and analysis (modeling, errors, graphical analysis, etc.) and prepares students for upper-division research. Prerequisite: High School physics or equivalent, and MATH& 151 or permission of instructor.
