PHYS 231 - Classical and Modern Physics I, II

The first semester of a two-semester introduction to classical and modern physics for science majors. A calculus-based treatment of the principles of mechanics, heat and thermodynamics. This sequence can be used by prospective physics majors and by other students planning to take physics courses numbered 300 and higher; however, the four-semester sequence PHYS 151, 152, 251, 252 is recommended. PHYS 231, 232 in conjunction with the laboratory, PHYS 203, 204 satisfies the requirements for the B.S. in Chemistry, and can be used in place of PHYS 201, 202, 203, 204 to satisfy the requirements of medical and dental schools. PHYS 231 is prerequisite for 232. Three lecture hours and one problem session per week. (Y)
