PHYS 203 GNRL PHYSICS NON ENGR I 4 semester hours PHYS-Physics
Course Description:    First of two related courses (with PHYS 204). Fundamental concepts and laws of physics with emphasis on principles and development of scientific methods applied to physical relationships. Less emphasis is placed on mathematics than in PHYS 161-262-263, and concurrent enrollment in calculus courses is, therefore, not required. This course includes topics such as mechanics, heat, sound, electricity and magnetism, light, and modern physics. Credit is given for the successful completion of PHYS 203 whether PHYS 204 is taken or not. (NSLD) PREREQUISITE: Knowledge of trigonometry or consent of department.
