The goal of this course is to provide a calculus-based physics course to help students pursuing advanced studies in engineering develop conceptual understanding of physical principles, the ability to reason, and gain skills for problem solving.
Vectors; kinematics; particle dynamics work and energy; conservation of energy; system of particles; collisions; rotational motion; oscillations.
1) Understand how phycists approach and solve problems in mechanics,
2) Apply those methods to solve problems of mechanics,
3) Use inductive reasoning and calculus level mathematics to solve problems in mechanics,
4) Engage in independent and collaborative learning,
5) Identify, find, and use the tools of information science as it relates to mechanics,
6) Critically evaluate both source and content of scientific information.
