Credit Hours: 4 Lecture Hours: 3 Lab Hours: 2
Prerequisite(s): MATH 1333 - College Algebra  with a grade of “C” or better, high school physics, or departmental consent
This lecture-laboratory covers the basic principles of classical mechanics and thermodynamics. Topics covered include displacement, velocity, acceleration, projectile motion, force, work and energy, momentum and collisions, rotational motion, torque, pressure, and buoyancy. Newton’s laws of motion and gravity are discussed. Also, temperature, thermal expansion, kinetic theory of gases, heat, phase changes, the second law of thermodynamics, and entropy are studied. The laboratory portion of the course is designed to reinforce concepts from lecture. Offered in the spring only ACTS Equivalent Course Number = PHYS 2014
