Description
This is part two of a calculusbased physics sequence intended for physical science and engineering majors. Topics include mechanical properties of matter, behavior of fluids, harmonic motion and waves, basic thermodynamics, and an introduction to electricity. Lab work required. Prerequisite: PHYS& 221. Corequisite: MATH& 152. Formally PHYS 202, Physics for Science and Engineering II. 
Intended Learning Outcomes
Demonstrate a detailed understanding of Newton’s Theory of Gravity and apply that law to simple physical systems.
Describe the behaviors of fluids under the influence of changes in pressure, temperature and mechanical forces.
Relate the transfer of thermal energy to changes in temperature, state of materials, and work done by heat engines.
Apply knowledge of vibrational energy to sound and human hearing.
Describe the components of a wave and relate those components to mechanical vibrations, sound, and decibel level.
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 gravity, fluids, thermal and vibrational energy using the mathematics of algebra, trigonometry, and calculus.
Investigate gravity, fluids, thermal and vibrational energy by designing, performing, and reporting on laboratory experiments.

Course Topics
Newton’s Theory of Gravity and applications with satellite and planetary motion
Damped and undamped oscillations
Thermal energy, thermodynamics, heat engines, and refrigerators
Static and dynamic behavior of fluids
Traveling waves, superposition and applications in sound and light
