PHY 205 - Intermediate Physics I Credits: 3


Introductory study of the laws of mechanics governing motion of objects acted upon by forces. Beginning spent on kinematics (the study of motion in terms of position, velocity, and acceleration). Newton's laws, which determine how forces generate motion, studied next. Remainder spent on direct applications of Newton's laws. These include the description of motion in terms of energy, the description of collisions and a brief study of rotational dynamics. Also presents a brief introduction to some of the elementary concepts involved in theories of special and general relativity. Vectors and differential calculus used.
