hours

A non-calculus based introduction to some mechanical topics in
physics including vector mathematics, one and two-dimensional
motion, force, energy, momentum, circular motion, rigid bodies,
static equilibrium and wave motion. Problem solving is emphasized.
A laboratory component is included which correlates with the
concepts of College Physics I.
