SP211 General Physics I
Content Areas: kinematics, forces, momentum, energy, rotation, gravitation, fluids, waves.

Learning Outcomes:
  1. Know General Physics I concepts and use them qualitatively to draw general conclusions about physical situations.
  2. Apply General Physics I concepts to solve technical problems quantitatively using both symbolic variables and numeric values.
  3. Use vector mathematics reliably as a natural part of your approach to physics.
  4. Use mathematics from your Calculus I, II, III sequence reliably as a natural part of your approach to physics.
