PHYS& 221 - Engineering Physics I with Lab

Credits: 5
Includes a detailed study of the basic laws of physics. Emphasizes the evolution of ideas from experimental observation to mathematical models. Includes a comprehensive investigation of Newtonian particle dynamics. Laboratory is an integral part of the course.

Enrollment Requirement: Eligible for ENGL& 101  and a grade of 2.0 or higher in PHYS& 114  or in a high school physics, or equivalent, and in MATH& 142  or equivalent with concurrent enrollment or completion in MATH& 151 .

Satisfies Requirement: Natural Science or Lab Science
Course Fee: $20.00

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Use appropriate reasoning to evaluate problems, make decisions, and formulate solutions, using elements of calculus and mathematical models to develop a comprehensive investigation of Newtonian particle dynamics.
  2. Give reasons for conclusions, assumptions, beliefs, and hypotheses, using elements of calculus and mathematical models to develop a comprehensive investigation of Newtonian particle dynamics.

Program Outcomes
  1. Use appropriate reasoning to evaluate problems, make decisions, and formulate solutions.
  2. Give reasons for conclusions, assumptions, beliefs, and hypotheses.


College-wide Outcomes
  • Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
