The following courses are offered in Astronomy:

## Physics

- This course serves as an introduction to general physics theory, especially for students who are not science oriented. A selected number of basic topics in physics are carefully examined and interpreted. Topics include mechanics, heat and thermodynamics, electromagnetism, optics, atomic and nuclear physics. The relevance of the scientist and his/her work to the lives of non-scientists is continually examined.

Course Syllabus - This course serves as an experimental introduction to general physics, especially for students who are not science oriented. A selected number of basic topics in physics are carefully examined and subjected to experimental verification. The relevance of the scientist and his/her work to the lives of non-scientists is continually examined.

Corequisite: PHY 108

Course Syllabus - This course serves as an introduction to Physics, especially for students who are not science-oriented. A selected number of basic physical ideas are carefully examined and interpreted non-mathematically. The relevance of the scientist and his/her work to the lives of non-scientists is continually examined.

Course Syllabus - This classroom and laboratory two-semester course includes the study of concepts and principles of physics in the areas of mechanics, heat and thermodynamics, sound, electricity and magnetism, light, and atomic physics plus an introduction to quantum physics and relativity theory. Algebra and simple trigonometry are used. Two terms required.

Prerequisite for PHY 220 is PHY 210

Course Syllabus - This is a two-semester course for students in science and engineering. Concepts of calculus are introduced and used when necessary. The lecture and laboratory exercises pertain to mechanics, fluids, heat and thermodynamics, wave motion, sound, electricity, and magnetism, geometric and physical optics, and an introduction to modern physics.

For PHY 215, Co-requisite: MAT 302

For PHY 225, Prerequisite: PHY 215 and MAT 302

NOTE: Students cannot receive credit for both PHY 210 and PHY 215, or PHY 220 and PHY 225.

Course Syllabus - This is an introduction to atomic and nuclear physics, relativity, solid state physics, and elementary particles.

Prerequisite: PHY 225, Corequisite: MAT 501 or departmental approval

Course Syllabus - The course is designed to give the student a fundamentally qualitative understanding of all the physical processes associated with the production, reproduction, and perception of musical sounds. This course may fulfill the physics requirement in the VAT Curriculum.
