PHYS 121 Advanced Physics I

Will provide science and engineering students who have taken PHYS 12 with a detailed investigation of Newtonian Physics. The topics covered in depth in this course are Newtonian Mechanics of few bodies, namely, thermodynamics. In the first topic, translational and rotational statics and dynamics will be discussed in terms of forces, torques and energy while, in the second, thermodynamics will be presented from the point of view of conservation of energy and atomic theory. The various physical laws will be discussed using the principles of differential calculus. Problems and exams will require differential calculus for their solution. (3,3,0)
