APPL PHYSICS
CLASS CODE: PH 105 CREDITS:  3
DIVISION: PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING
DEPARTMENT: PHYSICS
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course fulfills a General Education - Physical Science requirement.

CATALOG DESCRIPTION: This course is the first semester of the algebra and trigonometry-based Applied Physics sequence. Designed for students majoring in a pre-professional discipline.
DESCRIPTION: An introductory applied physics course not requiring calculus. Physics covers the laws that govern energy and matter and their interaction.
TOPICS: Basic physical principles and laws governing motion (including forces, mechanical energy, and momentum), waves, and thermodynamics.
OBJECTIVES: This course is specifically designed to help you learn to think physically in terms of the laws of mechanics, heat, waves, and sound. In doing this, you will develop strong analytical problem solving skills.
REQUIREMENTS: Concurrent enrollment in Physics 105L laboratory strongly recommended. Check with your advisor.
PREREQUISITES: Math 111 or working knowledge of trigonometry.
