PHY 2048L - General Physics I Laboratory


1 credit
Prerequisites: (SB 1720 Testing Exemption or successful completion of Developmental courses in reading and writing); and MAC 2311  with a minimum grade of "C"
Corequisites: PHY 2048  
This laboratory course accompanies PHY 2048  and is the first part of a sequence of two courses. The sequence includes investigations that illustrate and explore concepts and principles related to force and motion, work and energy, rotation, gravity, properties of matter, electric charges and currents, resistance and capacitance, magnetism and electromagnetic induction, optics, and nuclear radiation. The course is designed to encourage the concept of "learning by doing" and enhance student learning of physical concepts. It introduces students to experimental procedures, techniques and equipment; it involves setting up the laboratory equipment, collection of data, interpretation of experimental data and preparation of a lab report.
