PHYS 115 - Principles of Physics I


(1.25 units)

The first semester of a two-semester sequence of introductory physics for biological science majors, including pre-professional majors. Topics include classical mechanics, fluids, and thermodynamics. Calculus is not required but is recommended; the student should be familiar with algebra, trigonometry, and some analytic geometry. An emphasis in these courses is the application of physical principles in technology and in other areas of science, particularly the biological sciences. Students may not receive graduation credit for both PHYS 115 and PHYS 110 C . Laboratory included. (Group II) (Quantitative)
