Courses: Classical and Modern Physics I (PHYSH101A02)

Fall 2008

Three class hours and one laboratory period. Newtonian mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid motion, and relativity. Applications to other fields, especially the life sciences, will be included. The combination of this course with Physics 102 constitutes a comprehensive, one-year introduction to physics. A special section of this course (limited to 12) is designed for students whose preparation in physics and mathematics is weak, and/or who might benefit from extra discussion times and an exploration-based class format. This section will also meet TTh at a time TBA.

Prerequisites: Calculus at the level of Mathematics 113A or equivalent should be taken prior to or concurrently with this course.
