6.Apply the laws of thermodynamics.7.Apply basic laboratory techniques.GENERAL EDUCATION OUTCOMES:Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:3. 1 Use critical thinking skills appropriate for the nature and level of a given Gen Ed course to solveproblems involving, but not limited to, data analysis and interpretation, and experimental design.3.2 Demonstrate understanding of basic terminology, major concepts and fundamental theories inPhysics.The assignment(s)/activity students engage in to demonstrate their acquisition of the NJCCC GE learninggoal:3.1 This outcome is measured by the lab skill test. Students are asked to use the providedequipment in order to perform a basic measurement of one or more physical quantities. They arealso required to give a proper data analysis and interpretation.3.2Conceptual questions and problems embedded in the final exam are used to assess studentunderstanding of basic terminology, major concepts and fundamental theories related to thekinematic and dynamic of translational and rotational motion, work and energy, thermodynamicsand fluids.GRADING STANDARD:Homework:Homework will be assigned every week.Late homework will not be accepted.Assignments are done online.You will need to get an account with.The coursekeyis provided by the instructor.THIS IS A COURSE CODE – NOT A PURCHASE CODE!You will need togo to webassign and create an account.
