PHY 125 - General Physics with Calculus I: Studio (Integrated Laboratory and Lecture)


Instructors
Belloni, Thompson, Ybarra

Mechanics, rotational motion, fluids, waves, sound, and thermodynamics. Course designed for students who intend to major in chemistry, mathematics, physics, and/or students planning to pursue a degree in engineering or medicine. Class meets for 2 hours, 3 times per week in a combined lecture/laboratory studio setting.  Of this time, 3 hours per week are dedicated to laboratory work.

The discussion of some topics will require a basic understanding of simple derivatives and integrals.  For this reason, prior or concurrent experience with calculus is recommended (especially for students considering taking PHY 235), although it is not required as the course contains a brief review of the prerequisite calculus needed.

Satisfies a requirement in the Applied Mathematics interdisciplinary minor.
Satisfies the Natural Science requirement.

Prerequisites & Notes
Corequisite: MAT 111 or MAT 112
