# PHY 113 - Technical Physics 1

Credits: 3
2 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours

Prerequisites: MAT 114

Description
This is a course for students majoring in the engineering technologies. Topics may include force, work, rate, momentum, resistance, power, energy, force transformers, energy converters, transducers, vibrations and waves, time constants, hydrostatics and hydrodynamics and radiation. Physical concepts are developed through applications of the four principle energy forms (mechanical, fluidal, electrical and thermal). Everyday applications are examined in the laboratory.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

1. Define vocabulary terms related to the description of physical quantities and the statements of the laws and principles of Physics.
2. Use the appropriate mathematical methods of algebra and trigonometry in applying the laws and principles of physics to problem solving related to the engineering technologies.
3. Describe and explain observed physical phenomena.
4. Identify the limitations of mathematical models for predicting outcomes for physical processes.
5. Conduct laboratory experiments.
