Description
This is part one of a calculusbased physics sequence intended for physical science and engineering majors. Topics include linear and rotational motion, forces, kinetic and potential energy, momentum, and translational and rotational equilibrium. Lab work required. Prerequisite: Appropriate placement score or grade of C or higher in ENGL 087; or permission of the Science Division Chair or designee. Recommended: READ 088 or higher. Corequisite: MATH& 151. Formerly PHYS 201, Physics for Science and Engineering I. 
Intended Learning Outcomes
Demonstrate knowledge of one and twodimensional kinematics.
Apply Newton's Laws as they relate to motion and forces in static, dynamic, circular, and rotation situations.
Describe the significance of conservation laws in physics; particularly conservation of energy and momentum.
Analyze a written problem or observed phenomena, simplify it, identify the key known and unknown features, make predictions, and evaluate those predictions based on the principles of physics.
Solve numerical problems related to motion, forces and conservation laws using algebra, trigonometry, and calculus.
Investigate motion, forces and conservation laws by designing, performing, and reporting on laboratory experiments.

Course Topics
Physical quantities, vectors, units, and conversions
One and twodimensional kinematics
Forces and Newton?s Laws of Motion
Statics and dynamics
Circular and rotational motion
Energy, momentum, and principles of conservation
