PHYS 101 Introduction to Physics 1

is the first physics laboratory course introducing students to contents and methods useful for careers in engineering, bio-medicine, physics, or mathematics. It is an algebra-based study of the physical world, covering topics such as mechanics, matter, work, energy, rotational dynamics, and sound. Student experiments in the laboratory are used to illustrate the concepts studied in the lecture and practiced in the problems. This course is also a useful introduction for students who have not had physics in high school but who plan to take the engineering physics sequence starting with PHYS 151. This course is applicable toward all certificates and degrees; group requirements include natural/physical science; areas of concentration include general science (credit hours 4.0, lecture hours 3.0, lab hours 2.0).
