Engineering Physics w/Lab II
This course is a continuation of PHYS& 221. Topics include fluid mechanics, waves, and thermodynamics. 5 lecture hours; 2 lab hours. Satisfies specified elective requirement for the AA degree.
Prerequisites: PHYS& 221 and MATH& 152 or concurrent enrollment in MATH& 152 or instructor permission.
- Be able to characterize the deformation of solids including elastic and plastic deformation and fracture and apply statics conditions in solving physics problems.
- Understand introductory fluid dynamics including the equation of hydrostatic equilibrium, Pascal’s and Archimedes’ principles, equation of continuity, and Bernoulli’s equation and be able to apply these principles to solve physics problems.
- Understand oscillatory and wave motion behavior and phenomena including sound and be able to appropriately apply these principles to solve physics problems.
- Understand the three laws of thermodynamics and be able to appropriately apply thermodynamic principles in solving physics problems
- Gain experience obtaining and analyzing experimental data.
