PHYS 11700 - Principles of Physics I: Mechanics Intended as the first semester of calculus-based college physics for students majoring in science or mathematics. Topics include vectors, kinematics in one and two dimensions, dynamics, work, energy, momentum, rotational motion, oscillation, and the properties of fluids. Emphasis is placed on the mathematical analysis of concepts. Three two-hour lecture/recitation/laboratory sessions per week. Prerequisites: MATH 11100 (may be taken concurrently). 4 credits. (F,Y) 4.000 Credit Hours 3.000 Lecture hours 1.000 Lab hours PHYS 11800 - Principles of Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism Intended as the second semester of calculus-based college physics for students majoring in science or mathematics. Topics include static electric fields and Coulomb's law, Gauss's law, electric potential, capacitors, Ohm's law, the magnetic field and Ampere's law, induction and Faraday's law, and elementary circuit theory. Emphasis is placed on mathematical analysis. Three two-hour lecture/recitation/laboratory sessions per week. Prerequisites: PHYS 11700; MATH 11200 (may be taken concurrently). 4 credits. (S,Y) 4.000 Credit Hours 3.000 Lecture hours 1.000 Lab hours PHYS 12000 - Introductory Applied Physics Laboratory A laboratory course designed to develop experimental skills. Focus is on the use of modern electronics and computers to measure and analyze data. Students construct analog and digital circuits and then use them to carry out experiments illustrating physical principles from mechanics and electricity and magnetism. Prerequisite: PHYS 11800 (may be taken concurrently). 3 credits.
