Physics

PHY 1048L   PHYSICS LABORATORY I

credits: 1  
Corequisite: PHY 1053 or PHY 2048. This course is to provide laboratory experience with concepts and principles of mechanics, heat and sound. This course has a substantial writing requirement. Credit is not given for both PHY 1048L and PHY 1048LH. 45 contact hours.

PHY 1048LH   HONORS PHYSICS LABORATORY I

credits: 1  
Prerequisite: Appropriate score on the SPC placement test or acceptance into the Honors College or approval of science program director. Corequisite: PHY 2048H. This course is to provide laboratory experiences with the concepts and principles of mechanics, heat and sound. This lab will employ short interactive explorations and presentations that are followed by intense discussions leading to more explorations and discussions. The explorations will include hands on experiments with laboratory equipment as well as interactive computer animations. This instructional method will put more of the responsibility of the learning process on the students who will be working in collaborative learning communities. It will also create a learning environment that is conducive to deeper conceptual understanding. This course has a substantial writing requirement. Credit is not given for both PHY 1048LH and PHY 1048L. 45 contact hours.

PHY 1049L   PHYSICS LABORATORY II

credits: 1  
Prerequisite: PHY 1048L. Corequisite: PHY 1054 or PHY 2049. A continuation of Physics Laboratory I, this course provides laboratory experiences in concepts and principles of electricity, magnetism, and light. This course has a substantial writing requirement. 45 contact hours.

PHY 1053   GENERAL PHYSICS I

credits: 3  

Prerequisite: (ENC 0025 and REA 0017) or EAP 1695 and either MAC 1114 or MAC 1147. Corequisite: PHY 1048L. Subject matter includes mechanics, heat, and sound. This is a course for students not majoring in the physical sciences. (Credit is not given for both PHY 1053 and PHY 2048.) 47 contact hours.

PHY 1054   GENERAL PHYSICS II

credits: 3  
Prerequisite: PHY 1053. Corequisite: PHY 1049L. Subject matter includes electricity, magnetism, light, and some modern physics. This is a course for students not majoring in the physical sciences. (Credit is not given for both PHY 1054 and PHY 2049.) 47 contact hours.

PHY 2048   PHYSICS I

credits: 3  

Prerequisite: (ENC 0025 and REA 0017 and MAC 2311) or (EAP 1695 and MAC 2311). Co-requisite: PHY 1048L. This course includes theory of Newtonian mechanics: vectors; force; motion; energy; and rotation of rigid bodies. It also includes theory of heat; sound and wave motion; and use of Calculus in problem solving. This course is designed for physics majors and for engineering students. Credit is not given for both PHY 2048 and PHY 2048H. 47 contact hours.

PHY 2048H   HONORS PHYSICS I

credits: 3  
Prerequisite: (MAC 2311 or MAC 2311H) or (acceptance into the Honors College) or approval of the Science Program Director. Corequisite: PHY 1048LH. This course includes theory of mechanics: vectors; force; motion; energy; rotation of rigid bodies; elastic properties; vibratory motion, properties of fluids; molecular theory of matter. It also includes theory of heat; heat transfer; thermodynamics; sound and wave motion phenomena; use of Calculus in problem solving. This course will employ interactive learning and research projects beyond the typical Physics course. The research projects will include a term paper in Special Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, or Renewable Energy. The interactive learning will include the use of computer animations with physics content demonstrating their understanding without as much guidance by using interactive techniques, critical thinking, and conceptual understanding to solve problems. In this course students will learn the underlying concepts that give them a much deeper understanding of the material. This course is designed for physics majors and for engineering students. Credit is not given for both PHY 2048H and PHY 2048. 47 contact hours.

PHY 2049   PHYSICS II

credits: 3  
Prerequisite: PHY 2048 and (MAC 2312 or MAC 2234). Corequisite: PHY 1049L. This course is the study of theory of electricity and magnetism, nature of light, electromagnetic radiation, optics, and selected topics in modern physics. Calculus will be used in problem solving. This course is intended for physics majors and engineering students. 47 contact hours.
