PHY 114 - Technical Physics 2

Credits: 3
2 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours

Prerequisites: PHY 113  

This course is a continuation of PHY 113 . Emphasis is on technical application of physical concepts developed through the application of the four energy forms. 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. Investigate physical systems and collect and analyze measured data in the laboratory.
