Physics for Engineers I
Prerequisite: PHY 1020
Co-requisite: MAC 2311
Description: This course is only for Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering declared majors. This course will enroll declared Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering majors only. The course surveys fundamental laws and phenomena of mechanics, vibrations and waves, and selected topics in heat and fluids. Emphasis will be placed on the mathematical analysis of physical problems using calculus. The problems will involve physics applications to engineering when possible. Students who have passed a year of high school physics with a minimum grade of B can request to have the PHY 1020 prerequisite waived by the engineering student advisor.
