PHYS 205: Physics for the Built World

3 credit hours

Prerequisite: MATH 213 or MATH 211 or MATH 109 and MATH 110
A brief introduction to Newtonian mechanics (motion, energy, momentum, force) and wave properties. Areas of application may include statics, heat transfer, light propagation, sound propagation, and simple fluid flow. Algebra and trigonometry based with an introduction to log scale and use of vector analysis. This is an integrated lab and lecture course emphasizing experiment, data collection and analysis, problem solving and cooperative learning. Not for science majors.
