- Name: Physics for Scientists and Engineers Lab I
- Division: Liberal Arts
- Discipline: Physics
- Units (Credits): 1.00
I. Catalog Course Description
Prerequisites: MATH181 ; Corequisites: PHYS180
Explores vectors, rectilinear motion, particle dynamics, work and energy, momentum, rotational mechanics, oscillations, gravitation, fluids, wave properties and sound. Students must co-enroll in both lecture and lab to receive credit.
II. Course Objectives and Linkage to General Education Program
The purpose of this course is to reinforce concepts and practices in PHYS 180 while also acquiring skills in experimental design, data collection and analysis, and scientific writing.
Upon successful completion of PHYS 180L (defined as a letter grade of C or better, 73% or higher overall score) learners will be able to:
- Produce valid hypotheses regarding topics in Newtonian mechanics. (ISLO #1, #4, #6)
- Design and implement experiments which can confirm or deny hypotheses. (ISLO #1, #6)
- Produce written reports about experiments and their outcomes. (ISLO #2, #3, #6)
Experiments in this course will address topics including, but not limited to, measurement and uncertainty, one dimensional motion, projectile motion, Newton’s laws of motion, friction, centripetal force, work and energy, impulse and momentum, and rotational dynamics.
