PHYS 007. Introductory Mechanics

An introduction to classical mechanics. This course is suitable for potential majors, as well as students in other sciences or engineering who would like a course with more mathematical rigor and depth than PHYS 003 . Includes the study of kinematics and dynamics of point particles; conservation principles involving energy, momentum and angular momentum; rotational motion of rigid bodies, and oscillatory motion.
Lab used for hands-on experimentation and occasionally for workshops that expand on lecture material.
Prerequisite: MATH 025  and PHYS 005  or permission of the instructor.
