SCI 240 Concepts in Physics

This course provides a conceptually-based exposure to the fundamental principles and processes of the physical world. Emphasis is placed on the physics of everyday life and how things work. Topics include basic concepts of motion, forces, energy, fluid mechanics, heat, electricity, magnetism, and waves. Upon completion, students should be able to describe examples and applications of the principles studied. Computer-based exercises will be used to enhance and consolidate the understanding of basic physical principles and applications.
