PHY 2048 Calculus Physics I Fall 2006 Section 80182 Four Semester Hours 50/1102 Tuesday & Thursday 9:25 AM – 10:40 PM, Friday 12 – 12:50 PM Course Website: http://www.unf.edu/coas/chemphys/phys/physics.html This course is the first physics course for students who would like to become a scientist or an engineer. It is the foundation for all remaining physics, other sciences, and engineering studies. The course builds on your previous physics problem-solving skills and provides background that is essential to further study in the sciences and engineering. Instructor : Dr. J. Garner To Reach Me : Science & Engineering Building #50 Room 1532 jgarner@unf.edu phone 620-1947 Office Hours: TBA in class Prerequisite : A high school physics course with minimum grade of B or Introduction to Physics (PHY 1020C) with minimum grade of B; Calculus I. These are essential. See me after class if you lack this background. This course also involves a lot of algebra and so you will need to brush up on your algebra skills (e.g. solving simultaneous equations) if you are rusty. Corequisite : Calculus II See me after class if you lack this background. Text : Physics for Scientists and Engineers: Volume I , Mechanics, Waves, and Heat by Tipler (5 th Ed., 2004). Webnotes (these can be found at the UNF physics homepage listed at the top of this page) Schaum’s Outline Physics (optional) Study Guide (Optional) CD of above textbook (Optional) Overview : The goal of this course is to build on your basic physics concepts and problem-solving skills in the following core areas of physics: classical mechanics (motion); vibrations and waves; and thermodynamics(heat). Objectives:

The aim is for this course to help you understand fundamental physical principals and to encourage you to learn how to solve physics problems. Here is an overview of topics: ● vector addition, subtraction and multiplication (dot and cross products) ● handling units and converting units (e.g. mph to m/s) position, velocity, acceleration , free fall motion, projectile motion, and circular motion (this requires some calculus) Newton’s laws of motion with friction present (mostly algebra of simultaneous equation) work, potential energy, kinetic energy, total energy , and power (some calculus) ● system of particles, rigid bodies, rotational kinematics and rotational dynamics (some calculus) conservation laws for motion (energy, momentum, and angular momentum ) ● gravitation (force, field, and potential energy) ● vibratory motion and wave phenomena
