PHYS 1112

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021.

First course in a three-semester introductory physics sequence. This course is taught in a largely "flipped', highly interactive manner, with reading preparation required for class. Covers the mechanics of particles with focus on kinematics, dynamics, conservation laws, central force fields, periodic motion. Mechanics of many-particle systems: center of mass, rotational mechanics of a rigid body, rotational equilibrium, and fluid mechanics. Temperature, heat, the laws of thermodynamics. At the level of University Physics, Vol. 1, by Young and Freedman.

When Offered Fall, Spring, Summer.

Permission Note Primarily for: students in engineering, physics or related subjects.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: MATH 1910, MATH 1120, or MATH 1220. Recommended corequisite: MATH 1920 in order to continue with PHYS 2213 the following semester. Corequisite: MATH 1910 may be allowed by instructor in exceptional cases, but continuation in PHYS 2213 will then have to be deferred until MATH 1920 is completed.
Forbidden Overlaps Forbidden Overlap: due to an overlap in content, students will receive credit for only one course in the following group: EAS 1600, PHYS 1101, PHYS 1112, PHYS 1116, PHYS 2207.

Distribution Category (PBS-AS, PHS-AS)

Comments Students interested in majoring in Engineering Physics or Physics, and who have a strong physics and mathematics background are encouraged to consider PHYS 1116.

  • There is no wait list for this class. The Physics Department will assist you if you are unable to resolve a conflict between your Physics course and another required course for your degree; however, if changing your first-year writing seminar, PE class, or another elective is possible and will resolve the conflict, then you should resolve the conflict on your own rather than seeking an accommodation from Physics.
