Focused Physics I

PHYSICS 193

Physics 193 is the first part of a two-semester calculus-based introduction to physics, with a co-requisite of Calculus II (Math 132 or its equivalent). The course is an advanced first-year course in classical mechanics, taught at a more sophisticated level than Physics 191. The approach is that of an upper-division physics course, with more emphasis on the underlying formal structure, rather than breadth of topics. The main goal is to provide an in-depth coverage of the physical laws that govern the motion of objects, forces, and forms of energy in mechanical systems, as well as an introduction to special relativity. The course is particularly addressed to students considering a physics or mathematics heavy science/engineering majors. L 31 193 students should enroll in a L31 193L Physics I laboratory section. The combination of L31 193 and L31 191L is a replacement for L31 197. Students may not receive credit for more than one of Physics 117A, 197, 191 and 193. Students enrolled in 193 must also enroll in 193A.
