This is a calculus-based study of the fundamental principles of classical mechanics and topics include, rotational motion, simple harmonic motion, waves, fluid, heat, kinetic energy, and thermodynamics.

Physics 160 is a calculus-based study of the fundamental principles of classical mechanics. It is the second course of a three-semester sequence, intended for students of science and engineering and is designed to provide the student with an appropriate background for more advanced physics and engineering course work. Problem solving is central to this goal, and practical applications are introduced where appropriate.

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

1. Gain a conceptual understanding of physics principles. (PO 3)

2. Develop a good problem-solving techniques (PO 1&8)

3. Relate physics principles and applications to your everyday lives. (PO 3&6)

4. Solve problems involving the law of universal gravitation. (PO 1)

5. Solve problems involving rotational kinematics and dynamics. (PO 1&7)

6. Solve problems involving equilibrium and non-equilibrium states. (PO 1&7)

7. Relate harmonic motion to the world around us.

8. Solve problems involving wave motions. (PO 1&7)

9. Master the concepts of thermodynamics and kinetic theory of gasses. (PO 3)9. Master the concepts of thermodynamics and kinetic theory of gasses. (PO 3)

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
