PHYS 1401/1402 is the standard algebra-based physics sequence.PHYS 1401 alsosatisfies the physics prerequisitefor the calculus-based PHYS 2425/2426 sequence for studentswho have not taken high school physics.Course Rationale/ObjectivesThis course is designed for students who are pursuing degrees in scientific, health, and technicalmajors.It is intended to provide an overview of basic physics to help students fulfill degreerequirements and to prepare students for further studies.Since our courses are intended fortransfer to a four-year institution, they will be taught at the University level.Course Prerequisites:Grade of "C" or better in MATH 1314 or equivalentANDGrade of “C” or better in MATH 1316 –Trigonometry or MATH 2412 Pre-CalculusInstructional MethodologyThis is a lecture with a lab course which includes time for class discussions, demonstrations, labsand/or activities guided by the instructor.
Required Texts/MaterialsCollege Physics by Hugh D. Young 10TH Edition, Vol. 1Scientific calculatorStudent Learning OutcomesCourse-Level Student Learning Outcomes:Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:Demonstrate techniques to set up and perform experiments, collect data from thoseexperiments, and formulate conclusions from an experiment.Record experimental work completely and accurately in laboratory notebooks, andcommunicate experimental results clearly in written reports.Determine the component of linear motion (displacement, velocity, and acceleration), andespecially motion under conditions of constant acceleration.Apply Newton’s laws to physical properties including gravity.Solve problems using principles of energy.Use principles of impulse and linear momentum to solve problems.Solve problems in rotational kinematics and dynamics, include the determination of thelocation of the center of mass and center of rotation for rigid bodies in motionSolve problems involving rotational and linear motion.Demonstrate an understanding of equilibrium, including the different types ofequilibrium.Discuss simple harmonic motion and its application to quantitative problems orqualitative questions.Describe the component of a wave and relate those components to mechanical vibrations,sound, and decibel level.
