PHYS2110 is a calculusbased course and is intended for majors in
physics, engineering, mathematics, or a physical science and covers
units on mechanics, rotational mechanics, fluid mechanics, and
thermodynamics.
Goals:
To provide a basic knowledge of natural laws and their
mathematical basis. To provide a sound foundation for further study in
the physical sciences or engineering. To develop problemsolving skills.
The physical laws and conservation principles as well as the
operational definitions and units of the physical quantities are
expected to be committed to memory. Also, students will be expected to
master the analysis and the solution of problems in kinematics and
dynamics, work, energy, conservation of momentum, collisions, fluid
mechanics, rotational motion, and thermodynamics. The specific
competencies as they are related to the topics above are given in your
syllabus.
Accommodations:
Any student eligible for and requesting academic accommodations
due to a disability is requested to provide a letter of accommodation
from the Office of Disabled Students Services within the first two weeks
of the beginning of classes.
For all courses offered through the Physics and Mathematics
Department, any incidence of academic dishonesty carries a minimum
penalty of a nonremovable zero for that work.
