Physics 30

Physics 30 has as its major component, the topic of mechanics (the study of motion). Scientific and mathematical principles are used to analyze motion, and then through the study of dynamics (forces) and mechanical energy the different types of motion are investigated. After considering situations which involve motion on the earth’s surface, the study of motion is extended to consider situations on a universal scale. The course then switches gears and touches on magnetic and electric fields before finishing with some modern physics.  A look at Nuclear technology as well as some introduction to quantum mechanics and relativity is also included.
