PHY - 162 College Physics I

(4 s.h.)

Prerequisite: MAT - 134 Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry  or equivalent.
This is the first semester of a two-semester physics sequence relying on algebra, trigonometry, and analytic geometry, but not employing calculus. It is intended for students whose program requirements may be satisfied by a physics course of this level. It 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. 

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

Equivalent to 70-280, PHYS-120.
