PHYS 2010 - General Physics I
F - Dyersburg
Prerequisites: MATH 1710
This course is recommended or required for students interested in the following programs at local universities: allopathic medicine, dentistry, engineering technology, occupational therapy, optometry, physical therapy, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine. These programs require physics courses with labs, so students should not take online physics.
This course is an introduction to the concepts, principles and methods of physics using algebra and trigonometry for pre-medical, pre-dental, engineering, and science students. Emphasis is placed on experiences, experiments, demonstrations and use of multimedia resources to understand and apply in different situations the laws of motion, description of motion and forces, work, energy and the law of conservation of energy, linear momentum, circular motion, angular momentum, fluids, and thermal physics. The student is oriented toward integrating conceptual understanding with analytical skills using plain language with simple mathematics. The principles of physics are related to applications relevant to students’ lives. Problem-solving skills are developed beyond an algorithmic approach through examples, problem-solving strategies and exercises. 3 hours lecture, 3 hours laboratory.
