|PHYS 101 - PHYSICS FOR NON-SCIENTSTS|
A study of the common ground that all fields of science share and some of the major themes that have resulted in the development of modern science, emphasizing the field of physics. The course satisfies part of the requirements of General Education and is intended primarily for non-science students. The course involves a study of the historical, societal, and scientific events that were responsible for the present status of physics. It introduces classical and modern physics qualitatively, stressing conceptual understanding. Mathematical manipulations are restricted to simple and straightforward algebraic operations. When possible, demonstrations are used to illustrate topics covered which include: mechanics, heat, sound, electricity, magnetism, and modern physics.
