PHY 111 Physics: Algebra-Based I with Lab: SC1

5 Credit Hours • 105 Contact Hours (60 Lecture, 45 Lab)

Prerequisite: MAT 121

Enables the student to explore the truth about physical reality through reasoning, mathematics, and experimentation. Examines kinematics, force, circular motion, energy, momentum, torque, rotational dynamics, simple harmonic motion, temperature, heat, and thermodynamics. The concepts and theories presented are explored through demonstrations and hands-on experiments. It is a general physics course that is recommended for all of the health sciences and all other interested students. Students entering engineering or one of the advanced sciences should register for PHY 211.
