Students will demonstrate their understanding of useful concepts of kinematics and dynamics, energy and momentum, waves and sound, fluids and thermodynamics by (1) developing numerical and graphical descriptions of physical phenomena, (2) numerically predicting the results of physical occurrences, and (3) applying laboratory skills to analyze real situations. Numerical computations will utilize algebra and basic trigonometry where appropriate.As part of the coursework, you may have the potential of being, to some degree, exposed to hazardous material.
