PHYS 110: Newtonian Mechanics

4 hrs Lecture and 2 hrs Lab

Physics 12

Mathematics 113 or 115

Note: Students continuing on to a university in Math, Physics, Chemistry, Computing Science and Engineering are advised to enroll in MATH 113 and then MATH 114.

This is an introductory course in Newtonian mechanics, using the basic concepts of differential and integral calculus to study rectilinear motion and vector calculus to study rectilinear motion and motion in the plane. Topics include reference, collisions, work-energy principles, harmonic motion, rotation, and simple problems in relative dynamics.
