Tutoring Tip of the Week: Always seek the challenge of going faster, never settle for just knowing
This course is a first step in the study of the classical foundation of physics: Newtonian mechanics. More generally, the course is designed to give practice in elementary mathematical modeling of natural phenomena and problem solving in the physical sciences. Students of this course will develop a basic understanding the Galilean concept of motion and Newton’s Laws of mechanics, and be able to apply them to solve problems relating to simple systems. Topics covered include motion in one to three dimensions, forces, Newton’s Laws, energy and momentum, circular motion, rigid body motion, statics, universal gravitation, and basic fluid mechanics.
