Fall 2021 Courses

  •    PHYS 255 – University Physics I,  MWF 9:05 – 9:55 and TR 9:35 – 10:55, KTH 2003

    This is the first half of a year-long course in calculus-based physics for students in the physical sciences and mathematics. Definitions, concepts, problem solving, and computer modeling are emphasized. Topics include kinematics, dynamics, energy, conservation laws, rotation, harmonic motion, and thermodynamics.

    The course is taught in one of the department’s interactive engagement classrooms.

  •    PHYS 266 – University Physics II Laboratory,  R 12:40 – 2:40 and F 12:45 – 2:45, KTH 2035

    In this laboratory course, students perform physics experiments in electricity and magnetism, waves and optics which stress the fundamental definitions and laws developed in the lecture course. Students gain experience in computerized data acquisition and data analysis using modern techniques and equipment.

  •    PHYS 318 – Data Acquisition Using LabVIEW, TR 3:00 – 4:20, OCH 1004

    In this course students learn to use LabVIEW from National Instruments to acquire data from sensors.
