PHY 2053 - General Physics 1


Credit Hours: 3.0

Prerequisite(s): MAC1114, MAC1147 with minimum grade of C
Corequisite(s): PHY2053L


The first part of a two-term survey of physics for science and pre-professional students, this course introduces the student to mechanics and thermodynamics. These theories provide the student with established explanations of the phenomena of motion, gravity, fluids, waves, sound, and heat. The essential physical quantities (velocity, acceleration, force, mass, energy, momentum, etc.) are introduced in theoretical and practical contexts. The course earns General Education credit under the Physical Sciences category for which successful students will demonstrate the skills necessary to understand and apply scientific concepts and reasoning, including the analysis and interpretation of various types of data. The lab, which is an integral part of the course, verifies and extends classroom work.
