PHYS 1112 - Physics I: Mechanics & Heat

Fall, spring, summer. 4 credits.

Forbidden Overlap: Students may receive credit for only one course in the following group: EAS 1600 , PHYS 1101 , PHYS 1112, PHYS 1116 , PHYS 2207 .
Prerequisite: MATH 1910 , or MATH 1120 , or MATH 1220 . Recommended corequisite: MATH 1920  in order to continue with PHYS 2213  the following semester. Corequisite: MATH 1910  may be allowed by instructor in exceptional cases, but continuation in PHYS 2213  will then have to be deferred until MATH 1920  is completed. Primarily for students in engineering, physics or related subjects.  Students interested in majoring in Engineering Physics or Physics, and who have a strong physics and mathematics background are encouraged to consider  .

Fall, R. Fulbright; spring, P. Krasicky.

First course in a three semester introductory physics sequence. Covers the mechanics of particles with focus on kinematics, dynamics, conservation laws, central force fields, periodic motion. Mechanics of many-particle systems: center of mass, rotational mechanics of a rigid body, and static equilibrium.  Temperature, heat, the laws of thermodynamics. At the level of University Physics, Vol. 1, by Young and Freedman.
