PHY 111 : Introduction to Physics
This course is designed for health services/PT majors and for other students who wish to use it to fulfill the core requirement in science. The course lecture must be taken prior to, or concurrently with, the corresponding lab. PHY 111 covers kinematics, dynamics, conservation of energy and momentum, and rotational motion. PHY 112 covers statics, fluids, oscillations, sound and waves, temperature and heat, electricity and magnetism, and ray optics.
PHY 111L : Introduction to Physics Lab
This course is an introductory astronomy course for students from all majors. Students are introduced to the basics of the telescope, light, the seasons and the tides, the moon, the sun, the solar system, stars, galaxies and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Experience involving field use of telescopes and other observational tools is incorporated into the course. Astronomy will satisfy the non-lab core science elective or can also be used as a free elective. If taken in conjunction with the optional PHY 142L, it will also fulfill the core science requirement for a laboratory-based science course.
