PHYS& 221 Engineering Physics I (6 credits)

Distribution Area Fulfilled Natural Sciences with Lab; General Transfer Elective
Formerly PHYS 121 - CCN

Prerequisite Concurrent enrollment in or completion of MATH& 152  or instructor permission.

Course Description
The first quarter of a three-quarter sequence in calculus-based physics for science and engineering students. Topics covered include mechanics, kinematics, force, work, energy, momentum, and kinematics & dynamics of rotation. Lab included.

Student Outcomes
1. Qualitatively and quantitatively describe the natural world by applying the principles of physics related to mechanics.
2. Effectively communicate symbolic relationships by correctly relating each physical quantity of mechanics to the symbol that represents it and the unit specific to the quantity.
3. Demonstrate appropriate skills/strategies to solve physical problems related to mechanics.
4. Interpret experiments using measurement tools and data analysis to draw meaningful conclusions about physical systems.
5. Demonstrate effective collaboration skills to solve problems, conduct laboratory experiments, and produce reports.
