PHYS 101 Introduction to Physics I

This course provides science and engineering students who have not taken PHYS 12 with a general introduction to Classical Physics. The topics surveyed in this course are vectors, Newtonian Mechanics, properties of materials and thermodynamics. The various physical laws, for example, Newton’s universal law of gravity and conservation of mass, energy and momentum, will be discussed using the principles of calculus. However, problems and exams will not require calculus for their solutions. (3,3,0)
