First course in a sequence with PHYS208 that provides an introduction to physics for those in physical sciences and engineering. Emphasis on Newton's laws of motion and conservation principles. These are applied to motion in a gravitational field, and to rotation of a rigid body. Integrates conceptual understanding with extensive problem solving and laboratory experience.
One year of high school calculus is recommended. Only one course from PHYS104, PHYS201, PHYS207 and SCEN101 can count toward graduation. Open to UHP students only- minimum 3.0 required. Others require permission of Honors.
