PHY 2053L - College Physics I Laboratory


1 credit
Prerequisites: (SB 1720 Testing Exemption or successful completion of Developmental courses in reading and writing); and (a grade of "C" or better in (MAC 1140  and MAC 1114 ) or MAC 1147 )
Corequisites: PHY 2053  
This laboratory course accompanies PHY 2053  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.
