PHYS 101 Introduction to Physics I

Professor: M. Deady

CRN: 92341

Distribution: E/G/Q

Time: M Th 10:30 am - 12:30 pm HEG 106
Lab A: M 1:20 pm - 3:20 pm HEG 107
Lab B: M 3:40 pm - 5:40 pm HEG 107
Lab C: M 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm HEG 107

A calculus-based survey of Physics. This first semester covers topics in mechanics, heat and thermodynamics, and wave motion. The course stresses ideas--the unifying principles and characteristic models of physics. Labs develop the crucial ability to elicit understanding of the physical world. Corequisite: Math 111.

CRN: 92342

Distribution: E/G

Time: Tu 1:20 pm - 4:20 pm HEG 107
W 1:20 pm - 3:20 pm HEG 107

A sophisticated introduction to discrete component and integrated circuit analog electronics, from basic DC circuitry, RC-circuits, rectifiers, and bipolar transistors, through FETs, operational amplifiers, timer chips, voltage regulators, and other analog ICs. Equal parts lecture and lab. Corequisites: at least one physics and math course.

PHYS 321 Modern Physics

Professor: P. Skiff

CRN: 92343

Distribution: n/a

Time: W F 10:30 am - 12:00 pm ROSE 108

A topical course in the development of modern physics from the theory of relativity to quantum mechanics. Relativity, photoelectric effect, X-ray production and scattering, nuclear transmutation, alpha and beta radiation processes, particles and quasiparticles. Prerequisites: Physics 101-102, Mathematics 111-112.

PHYS 323 Methods of Theoretical Physics

Professor: M. Deady

CRN: 92344

Distribution: E/Q

Time: M W 9:20 am - 10:20 am HEG B10

2 CREDITS Mathematical and theoretical methods will be developed to use in advanced physics courses. Fourier series, vector calculus, power series, and other techniques will be used in constructing mathematical models for solving scientific problems. Corequisite: Mathematics 212 or permission of the instructor.
