PHYS 115 - General Physics I
Session 1: May 24 – July 1
Classical mechanics, heat, and electromagnetism. A calculus-based presentation of basic physical principles for students interested in the sciences or mathematics.
This course is the first half of a calculus-based survey of basic physics. We will be covering mechanics—the basic study of how things move—including kinematics, forces, energy, and rotation. The level is aimed at beginning physics majors, engineers, and pre-meds.
