SCIE 5321. MECHANICS, HEAT, & WAVE MOTION. 3 Hours.
This course is intended for students who wish to achieve a higher level of knowledge and effectiveness in the teaching of fundamental physics. Topics include: 1) Newton's laws of motion, gravitation, and planetary motion; 2) the basic laws of thermal and statistical physics; 3) oscillatory motion including waved and sound. Replicable experiments will be demonstrated throughout the course. This class is intended for M.A. in Interdisciplinary Science majors, and may not be taken for credit for M.S. or Ph.D. degrees in the College of Science. Prerequisite: Trigonometry.
