Demonstrations, lectures, recitations and laboratory work beginning a two semester sequence covering the subject. Mechanics is primarily covered during the first semester. Recommended for pre-medical, dental, pharmacy and for liberal arts student interested in the sciences. Prerequisite: An elementary understanding of algebra, trigonometry and geometry from high school study.
 
PHY-172 College Physics II, 4 cr.
Continuation of PHY-162. Thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism are covered in this semester. Lecture and laboratory. Prerequisite: PHY-162.
 
PHY-184    Applied Physics, 4 cr.
The course will develop the mathematical and analytical techniques required for making accurate computations in applied physics.  In parallel an understanding of the applications will be developed through hands on labs.  Topics covered will include:  systems of units, forces, torques, static equilibrium, kinematics, energy and momentum.  Co-requisite: MAT-101.
