PHYS 112 - Introductory Physics II with Laboratory
An investigation of topics in rotational dynamics, wave mechanics, and conservation principles. This integrated lecture/laboratory course includes the analysis of physical systems using algebra and trigonometry along with inquiry-based activities and experimental investigation.
Prerequisite: PHYS 111 or PHYS 121.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Describe and explain key physics topics such as linear & angular momentum, energy, torque, simple harmonic motion, and oscillations as well as key components of those main concepts.
- Solve problems in kinematics and dynamics using the appropriate physical principles and techniques.
- Utilize enhanced quantitative reasoning skills and mathematical analysis skills.
- Analyze and interpret data and experimental uncertainty in order to make meaningful comparisons between experimental measurements or observation and theory.
