PHY* E121 - General Physics I (4 credits)

Code(s): SCI, SCKX, SCRX
Prerequisite(s): MAT* E137  with a grade of “C” or higher
Begins with a review of essential arithmetic operations, dimensional analysis, and systems of measurements. Then basic concepts in mechanics, energy, rotation, properties of matter, and heat are developed. Specific topics covered include: motion, Newton’s three laws, vectors, uniformly accelerated motion, forces, motion due to gravity, work and energy, momentum, angular motion, rotation, mechanical properties of matter, and temperature and heat transfer.
