Courses: Modeling the Physical World-Foundations & Frontiers (PHYSB121001)

Fall 2010

Class Number: 1366
This course presents current conceptual understandings and mathematical formulations of fundamental ideas used in physics. Students will develop physical intuition and problem-solving skills by exploring key concepts in physics such as the conservation of energy and momentum and modern topics in physics including the unification of the fundamental forces, relativistic space-time, nuclear and particle physics, and cosmology. This course can serve as a stand-alone survey of physics or as the first of a four-semester sequence designed for those majoring in the physical sciences. Lecture three hours, laboratory three hours. Corequisite: MATH 101. (staff, Division IIL and Quantitative Skills)
IIL or Q
Co-requisite: Math B101. Students take one lab session from among
days M, T, W, TH 1:00 to 4:00 pm.;
