PHYS& 115 - General Physics with Lab II


5 credits

Prerequisites
PHYS& 114  

A continuation of PHYS& 114 , this course covers the second term of the general physics program. It partially satisfies the pre-curriculum requirements in medicine, dentistry, forestry and related fields. Topics studied include special relativity, heat, sound, fluid dynamics, and properties of matter. Problem solving and Laboratory practices are integrated with this work.

Theory Hours
5 theory hours.

Guided Practice Hours
2 guided practice hours.

AA Specified Elective
Satisfies specified elective requirement for the AA degree.

Course Outcomes
  • Be able to characterize the deformation of solids including elastic and plastic deformation and fracture and apply statics conditions in solving physics problems
  • Understand introductory fluid dynamics including the equation of hydrostatic equilibrium, Pascal’s and Archimedes’ principles, equation of continuity, and Bernoulli’s equation and be able to apply these principles to solve physics problems
  • Understand oscillatory and wave motion behavior and phenomena including sound and be able to appropriately apply these principles to solve physics problems
  • Understand the three laws of thermodynamics and be able to appropriately apply thermodynamic principles in solving physics problems
  • Gain experience obtaining and analyzing experimental data
