2114 - College Physics I - 4 credit
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.

electric charge, electric force, electric field, electric
potential, DC circuits, magnetic force, magnetic field,
electromagnetic induction, AC circuits, geometric optics, physical
optics, atomic physics and some special topics. A
laboratory component is included which correlates with the
concepts of College Physics II.
Prerequisite: PHYS 2115. Course
2414 - General Physics I - 4 credit
Presents a calculus-based introduction to topics in
mechanics, including vector mathematics, the kinematics of
