(3,2) 4 Credits
General Education Course: Science (lab)
Prerequisite(s): MATH 030 - Intermediate Algebra or MATH 106 Technical Math .
This course is an introduction to the concepts of physics and their application to real-world phenomena. Emphasis is on understanding the phenomena through demonstrations, experience, and experiments in physics and not through mathematical manipulations. This course may be used as a science elective for non-science majors and is required for students majoring in many of the medical and technology programs. It is also recommended for those taking General Physics without a strong high school science background. Topics include classical mechanics, properties of matter, heat and the laws of thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, vibration and waves, sound, and optics. Credit towards graduation will not be given for both Concepts of Physics and General or Engineering Physics.
