PHYS 103 - General Physics I

Credits: 4
This is the first in a sequence of two courses in algebra-based physics. Classical mechanics is covered in this course. The required lab component consists of experiments in classical mechanics that aid in the mastery of the course content.
Note: This sequence does not count towards the following majors: biochemistry, chemistry, forensic science or dual-degree engineering.
Students intending the take the MCAT are recommended to take the PHYS-153/154 sequence, which has more alignment with that examination. The PHYS-103/104 sequence may be taken as a supplement to a student’s preparation for a standardized exam that involves physics.

Prerequisite: MATH-125
Corequisite: PHYS-103L
