Introduces the basic principles of Newtonian mechanics with emphasis on the application of these principles when solving problems. Topics include kinematics of motion, vectors, Newton’s laws, friction, work-energy, impulse-momentum for both translational and rotational motion and the mechanical properties of matter. Dimensional (unit) analysis and critical thinking are stressed.
Prerequisite: A grade of “C” or better in MATH155M or equivalent. (Fulfills Lab Science elective)
