Physics I

SCI 250
Description: This physics course is an algebra based investigation of classical Newtonian mechanics. As almost everything we encounter or do on a daily basis involves physics, whether it is obvious or not, this course is particularly useful for any future career. Many of the examples studied are very practical, and theory is used as an adjunct to the real-world problems investigated. Topics include measurement and error, vector quantities, translational and rotational motion, Newton?s laws, work energy and power, and properties of materials. Laboratory sessions are designed to re-enforce material presented in class as well as introduce students to laboratory procedures and the scientific method. In addition to Newtonian mechanics, we will investigate basic electronics and robotics and their connection to physics
