MP 2119; MP 2219 - Physics I and II

This is a general course stressing understanding of physical principles and methods of problem solving. The first semester covers the basic principles of mechanics, heat, and the kinetic theory of gases. The second semester covers electricity, magnetism, wave motion, light, and selected topics in modern physics. In the laboratory, experiments are performed illustrating the basic physical principles and methods of experimental science.

Prerequisites: Elementary Functions is a prerequisite for Physics I, and Physics I is a prerequisite for Physics II.

3 hours Lecture and Discussion, 3 hours Laboratory—4 credits each
