This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This class was a Calculus 1 based physics. I learned a lot from my professors and my PLTL mentors. This class should be taken with the lab PHY 2049L because it helps understand the subject. It is essential that you take Calculus 1 before you take physics.
Course highlights:
This class was very straight forward, this course thought by my professor using applications rather that a theoretical way. I learned shortcuts using calculus to fully comprehend and apply my knowledge in Applying Newton's Laws for rotation, I leaned to draw body diagrams form a word problem, enhanced my understanding of thermodynamic processes and heat.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Study, study, study, read the book ATTEND LECTURE, and when doing the homework from the book, get the solutions manual because that will help you with the step by step solutions.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This professor makes the course very interesting and makes the topic easy to understand. In addition, he makes the course fun to learn, which helps reinforce the lessons.
Course highlights:
I learned basic principles of physics such as applications of Newton's laws, solving kinematics equations, and solving wave problems.
Hours per week:

Advice for students:
If you don't understand a specific area, be sure to look through the textbook to strengthen your understanding because physics is a cumulative subject, so it requires previous lessons and knowledge to solve other questions.
