PHY - 162 College Physics I

(4 s.h.)

Prerequisite: MAT - 134 Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry  or equivalent.
First semester of a two-semester physics sequence relying on algebra, trigonometry, and analytic geometry, but not employing calculus. Intended for students whose program requirements may be satisfied by a physics course of this level. Emphasizes kinematics, vectors, dynamics, conservation laws, simple harmonic motion, and rotational motion. This course, like other general education science division courses, addresses the general education skills of scientific literacy and critical thinking. A previous physics course may be helpful but is not required.

Lecture Hours: 45
Lab Hours: 30
Clinical Hours: 0
Work Experience Hours: 0

Equivalent to 70-280, PHYS-120.
