PHY 2020 – Introduction to Principles of Physics

General Education Credit: Physical Sciences
College Credit: 3

About The Course

This course exposes students to the foundations and principles of physics—the most fundamental of the experimental sciences—to give you a greater appreciation of the world around you and how it works. It provides a one-semester overview of the subject, may be useful as preparation for courses such as PHY 2048 and PHY 2053.

Course Goals

The short version is that by the end of this course, you will understand basic principles of physics and their applications. You will demonstrate this understanding by successfully solving physics problems. It is easy to remember “F = ma”, but unless you learn when to use it and how to apply it, knowing it is of no use!
