Course Website : GauchoSpace. Textbook & Required Materials College Physics 8th Edition, by Young & Geller iClickers will also be required for the course. Prerequisite(s) : Mathematics 3A or 34A (may be taken concurrently). Course Outline From the registrar: Presents concepts and methodologies for understanding physical phenomena, and is particularly useful preparation for upper-division study in the life sciences. Vectors, velocity, acceler- ation. Newton’s laws. Work and energy. Linear momentum. Gravity. Static equilibrium. Rotational motion. Angular momentum. More importantly, this course (and all of the Physics 6 sequence) will teach you problem solving skills . Most of you will likely not use the concepts taught in this course directly. However, the analytical skills necessary to master a course in physics are invaluable to doctors, dentists, lawyers, etc. Most of all, this course will teach you a new way to look at the world around and will help you become a...
