Physics 171, and 171H

PHYS 171 is the first semester of a three-semester calculus-based introductory physics course on classical physics for physics majors and those desiring a rigorous preparation in the physical sciences. The course material covers kinematics, Newton's laws, energy and work, linear and angular momenta, temperature and pressure, ideal gas law, and special relativity. Pre- or co-requisite is MATH 141, as well as a high-school physics course or permission of the department. A reasonable mastery of calculus will be assumed and used regularly in this class.


For those students who are already enrolled in the course, they may gain access to the ELMS homepage by clicking the LOGIN button below.
