Course Description:    Laboratory component of PH 010.
PH 105 CONCEPTUAL PHYSICS 3 semester hours PH-Physics
Course Description:    This course introduces fundamental concepts of physics with emphasis on applications to the world around us. The course is concept oriented and does not make extensive use of mathematics. Although the course does not satisfy the requirements of professional or engineering schools, it provides familiarity with basic principles prior to enrolling in other physics courses. (NSND) PREREQUISITE: A grade of C or better in MA 094, appropriate score on the mathematics placement test, or consent of department. Assessment levels: EN 101/101A, RD 120. Three hours each week.
PH 110 SOUND & LIGHT IN THE ARTS 4 semester hours PH-Physics
Course Description:    Selected topics in sound and hearing; traditional and electronic music; light and vision; lasers and holography; color theory; photography; recording and reproduction of sound and light; the broadcast media. Frequent demonstrations, occasional field trips, and guest lecturers. Laboratory work consists of further exploration of lecture-related topics by individuals or small groups. Projects are encouraged if time permits. (NSLD) (R only) PREREQUISITE: A grade of C or better in MA 094, appropriate score on the mathematics placement test, or consent of department. Assessment levels: EN 101/101A. Three hours lecture, three hours laboratory each week.

PH 161 GENERAL PHYSICS I 3 semester hours PH-Physics
Course Description:    First of three related courses (with PH 262 and PH 263) A calculus-based general physics course, required for students majoring in engineering or one of the physical sciences. This sequence is planned as a unified course of study with continuity of presentation across the semester boundaries. It is strongly recommended that students plan to complete the sequence in consecutive semesters. PH 161, Mechanics and Heat, covers fundamental laws of motion, force and energy, particle collisions, rotational mechanics, gravitation, thermodynamics, and kinetic theory. (NSND) (CE: G and TP/SS) PREREQUISITES: MA 181 and concurrent enrollment in MA 182, or consent of department. Three hours lecture, one hour discussion each week.

Course Description:    Discussion component of PH 161.
PH 203 GNRL PHYSICS NON ENGR I 4 semester hours PH-Physics
Course Description:    First of two related courses (with PH 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 PH 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 PH 203 whether PH 204 is taken or not. (NSLD) PREREQUISITE: Knowledge of trigonometry or consent of department. Assessment levels: EN 101/101A, MA 097/099, RD 099/103. Three hours lecture, four hours laboratory/discussion each week.
