PHY 211 - Physics: Calculus-Based I with Lab: GTSC1

5 Credits

Covers the physics of kinematics, dynamics, and conservation laws and requires application of classical physics to both mathematical and conceptual problems. Specific concepts covered include 1D and 2D kinematics, Newton’s Laws, rotational motion, energy and work, momentum and impulse, and simple harmonic motion. This course may also cover thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. The Colorado Commission on Higher Education has approved PHY 211 for inclusion in the Guaranteed Transfer (GT) Pathways program in the GT- SC1 category. For transferring students, successful completion with a minimum C‒ grade guarantees transfer and application of credit in this GT Pathways category. For more information on the GT Pathways program, go to http://highered.colorado.gov/academics/transfers/gtpathways/curriculum.html. For REQUIRED SYLLABUS information that is to be included on all syllabi starting Summer 2018 go to https://www.cccs.edu/educator-resources/common-course-numbering-system/gt-pathways-required-course-syllabi-information/.

Prerequisite(s): CCR 092  (or higher) or equivalent and MAT 201  with a grade of “C” or better; or equivalent placement scores.
