PHYS 100 - Applied Physics

3 Credit Hours

A foundation to understanding physical processes in technical applications. A thorough overview of measurement systems, practices, and notations is presented. Energy transformation and transfer processes are developed using a “systems model.” Physical processes are then described using the systems approach in a “micro-to-macro” sequence, including atomic/nuclear, molecular, electrical/magnetic, mechanical, thermal, fluid, wave/radiating, and optional astronomic/cosmic effects. Definitions and descriptions of the mass/energy interactions involved are given for each type of system, leading toward diagnosis and troubleshooting methods in technical applications.

Prerequisites: MATH 101  (“C” or higher required or equivelant Math placement assessment)
