select to open or close Course ePortfolio detail Course ePortfolio:  Algebra/Trigonometry-Based Physics A

Course ePortfolio Description:

This collection contains the Affordable Learning Solution for the Southern University System (AL$4SUS) list of peer-reviewed textbooks for Algebra/Trigonometry-Based Physics A (common course-id PHYS 105), one of the top 50 college courses identified for inclusion in the Southern University Online Library for Education (SUOLforEd).

General Course Description: PHYS 105

This course is intended for students not majoring in physics or engineering but needing a one-year course in physics as a requirement for their major program.  The course is part of a two-semester sequence whose contents may be offered in other sequences or combinations.  Core topics include:  kinematics, dynamics, work and energy, momentum, fluids, and simple harmonic motion.

This course is the first semester of a two-semester sequence.  PHYS 105 is composed of topics that together with PHYS 110 constitute all of the topics included in PHYS 100.  Topics may be offered in varying sequences and combinations, including “floating topics”.  The floating topics may be placed in different courses in the sequence, but all must be covered during the two-semester sequence.  Since different colleges vary slightly in the order in which topics are presented, it is strongly recommended that students take the entire sequence at the same institution.

Minimum Units: 4.0

Pedagogical Approach:

Course Content:

  • Vectors and Scalars
  • Newton’s Laws
  • Statics and Dynamics
  • Translational Kinematics
  • Rotational Kinematics
  • Rotational Dynamics
  • Work and Energy
  • Momentum
  • Gravitation
  • Simple Harmonic Motion
  • Fluids
  • Laws of Thermodynamics
  • Heat Engines
  • Kinetic Theory
  • Entropy
  • “Floating topics” which may be included in this semester
  • Mechanical Waves and Sound

Laboratory Activities:

Laboratory activities should cover the range of topics designated for lecture. The majority of labs should be hands-on activities with “real world” data collection as opposed to computer simulation. 

Outcomes:

At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:

  • Predict the future trajectory of an object in two dimensions with uniform acceleration.
  • Analyze a physical situation with multiple constant forces acting on a point mass using Newtonian mechanics.
  • Analyze a physical situation using concepts of work and energy.
  • Analyze static and dynamic extended systems using the concepts of torque and angular acceleration.

Laboratory Objectives:

At the conclusion of the laboratory component of this course, the student should be able to:

  • Analyze real-world experimental data, including appropriate use of units and significant figures.
  • Relate the results of experimental data to the physical concepts discussed in the lecture portion of the class.
