PHY 2425 – 11001 – Mechanics & Heat Summer 2010 PHY 2425 – 11001 – Mechanics & Heat Laboratory MEETINGS: Lecture 7:30 – 9:30 AM MTWTh 259 Winship Lab 9:40 – 11:40 AM MTWTh 259 Winship CREDIT: 4 Hours INSTRUCTOR: Lorinda Stinnett Office: Room # 210B Winship Building Phone: 281-618-1146 email: Lorinda.A.Stinnett@lonestar.edu (best way to contact me) office hrs: M-Th 11:40 – 12:15 PM, and by appointment TEXT: Young, Freedman, Sears & Zemansky’s University Physics with Modern. (12 th ed.) PREREQUISITES: MAT 2413 – Calculus I ENGL 0305 or ENGL 0316 and ENGL 0307 or ENGL 0326, or higher level course REQUIRED MATERIALS: 1. Scientific Calculator (non graphing, $20 or less, no cell phones) 2. Scantron Form B (you will need 6 of them) 3. Textbook 4. Pencil and eraser 5. Notebook 6. An inquisitive mind COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course includes the study of measurement, vector algebra, one- and two- dimensional motion, Newton's laws of motion, kinematics, momentum and collisions, rotational motion and angular momentum, elasticity, oscillations and gravitational interactions, fluids, waves, temperature and the laws of thermodynamics. It also includes an appropriate laboratory program illustrating the principles learned in lecture. This course is primarily for physical science and engineering majors. ATTENDANCE/WITHDRAWAL: Attendance is required for this course and will be taken on a regular basis. Some points to remember: 1. A student may withdraw from class at any time from the start of the semester until June 30, 2010 with a grade of W. 2. Communication with the instructor about any special circumstances regarding class attendance is strongly encouraged. 3. If you have a legitimate reason for missing an exam, the final exam grade will count proportionately higher. No make-up exams will be given. 4. If you have a legitimate reason for missing a lab, then you must inform me as soon as possible. Since the lowest lab grade will be dropped, a missed lab will be an automatic drop. GRADING POLICY: Quizzes 10% Recitation/Participation 10% Exam I 10% Exam II 10% Exam III 10% Final Exam 30% Lab 20% GRADING SCALE: A 90 – 100% Excellent B 80 – 89% Good C 70 – 79% Average D 60 – 69% Poor F 0 – 59% Failure W Withdrawn, no grade I Incomplete
