Calculus-based introduction to the concepts, laws, and structure of physics. Topics include kinematics, Newton's laws, energy, linear momentum, angular momentum, the conservation laws, gravitational force, harmonic motion, wave motion and interference, sound, and special relativity. A daily regimen of homework and reading, as well as weekly homework assignments, small group problem-solving exercises, and active class participation are integral parts of this course. Prerequisite: Previous or concurrent enrollment in Calculus I (Math 131) is required; previous or concurrent enrollment in Calculus II (Math 132) strongly recommended. Students may not receive credit for more than one of Physics 117A, 197, and 191. **Please note: in Summer 2020 this class will be delivered remotely.
