PH - Physics

PH201 (5 credits)
General Physics I
First of a three-term algebra-based physics course. Conservation laws and Newtonian mechanics are covered. This includes but is not limited to force and motion, forms of energy (including kinetic potential and various types of internal energy such as rotational, thermal and latent), conservation of momentum, conservation of angular momentum, conservation of energy, Newton's laws, kinematics, free-body diagrams, net force equations, torque and orbital mechanics. Students must enroll in lecture, laboratory and recitation sections. All three sections are required for this 5-credit class. Prerequisites: MTH112 and WR115 or BT113 or designated placement score. Co-requisites: PH201L, PH201R.
