PHYS

2114 -- College Physics I -- 4 credit hours
A non-calculus based introduction to models of physical phenomena including conservation of energy, three-phrase matter, mechanical energies, oscillations, particle models of matter, bond energy, and thermal energy, thermodynamics, ideal gas, entropy, Bernoulli's principle, sold-state energy-density, and linear transport.  Emphasis will be placed on conceptual analysis, graphical interpretation, and communication.  A laboratory component is included.  Prerequisite: MATH 1124 or equivalent.  Course rotation: Fall.

2124 -- College Physics II -- 4 credit hours
A continuation of College Physics I, including the following physical models:  Galilean space-time, momentum conservation, angular momentum conservation, Newtonian mechanics, harmonic motion, electrical and magnetic models including fields, forces, and potentials, waves, interference, and optics.  A laboratory component is included.   Prerequisite: PHYS 2114.  Course rotation: Spring.

2414 -- General Physics I -- 4 credit hours
A calculus-based introduction to models of physical phenomena including conservation of energy, three-phrase matter, mechanical energies, oscillations, particle models of matter, bond, energy, and thermal energy, thermodynamics, ideal gas, Galilean space-time, momentum conservation, angular momentum conservation, Newtonian mechanics.  Emphasis will be placed on conceptual analysis, problem solving, graphical interpretation, and communication.  A laboratory component is included.   Prerequisite: MATH 2315 or equivalent.  Course rotation: Spring.

2424 -- General Physics II -- 4 credit hours
A continuation of General Physics I, this course presents an introduction to Bernoulli's principles, sold-state energy-density, linear transport, harmonic motion, electrical and magnetic models including fields, forces, induction, and potentials, harmonic waves, interference, and optics.  A laboratory component is included.  Prerequisite:  PHYS 2414.  Course rotation: Fall.
