PHY-151: General Physics I

Mechanics is the study of motion of all types, from the smallest particles to the largest astrophysical objects. This course introduces the student to a number of concepts to help analyze classical motion, including kinematics, force, energy, and linear momentum. Newton's laws of motion and laws of universal gravitation are covered in detail. Instruction concentrates on basic principles of physics and general problem-solving techniques, both in class and in web-based homework assignments.
