### PHY 102: Concepts of Physics

MAT 115 Construction Math, MAT 117 Technical Math for Trades, or MAT 131 Intermediate Algebra.

PHY 103 Concepts of Physics Lab (if applicable to student major, required for Electric Utility Technology

Physics

Class Program

The course introduces students to phenomena, concepts, and principles of Physics at an introductory level. Topics will include light, waves, sound, energy, electricity, states of matter and Newton's Laws. This course is for students who may not have had prior Physics instruction. The course is required for Electric Utility Technology, Health Professions, and Radiologic Technology degree majors, but it is also applicable for many other majors who need a three or four credit science.

Prerequisites

MAT 115 Construction Math, MAT 117 Technical Math for Trades, or MAT 131 Intermediate Algebra.

PHY 103 Concepts of Physics Lab (if applicable to student major, required for Electric Utility Technology

Class Program

The course illustrates many of the topics introduced in lecture through hands-on laboratory experiments. Experiments in laboratory are conducted, but not limited to, the topics of force, acceleration, gravity, friction, circular motion, matter, temperature, and the Law of Reflection.

Prerequisites

MAT 115 Construction Math, MAT 117 Technical Math for Trades, or MAT 131 Intermediate Algebra

Corequisite Courses

Class Program

Among the topics covered are the kinematics and dynamics of linear motion, the conditions for static equilibrium, the principles of conservation of energy and of momentum, Newton's law of gravitation, the kinematics and dynamics of rotational motion, mechanics of solids and fluids and thermodynamics. This course is recommended for students wishing to transfer an algebra-based Physics course to a four-year institution; however, it is highly recommended that the student work with the transfer institution to ensure transferability.
