Physics 113  is a physics survey course designed

Physics 113 is a physics survey course designed for science majors who are not majoring in physics or engineering. Vectors Linear and multi-dimensional motion Work Some knowledge of calculus is assumed (techniques will be reviewed as needed).

Energy Gravitation Simple harmonic motion Conservation of momentum and energy Constant acceleration motion No previous physics instruction is assumed. Rotational motion Thermodynamics Waves

Surgeon Generals warning: No matter what youre smoking, this is not your high school course. Professor Steven Manly B&L 203E See syllabus/ info writeup 5-8473 [email protected] http://hertz.pas.rochester.edu/class/P113_2003/ Name

University ( @mail ) email address favorite midnight snack favorite novel Why are you in this course? Why are You here? It is a requirement for my major. I have to take the course to apply to med school. I have to take the course to graduate. Why is this a requirement for your major? fluid flow, arteries, water fountains, commodes

mechanics of breathing, walking, running, flying, standing golf all sports: curve balls, spin in tennis, drag in swimming, etc. Motors, gears, wheels, ambulances, bikes buildings, doors, bridges, skeletons Chemical bond modeling planes, boats gravity Why do I think you are here? Awareness and respect for physics in the real (your) world To learn to solve some basic physics problems. To learn to solve problems.

Not on the list: To learn to be physicists. It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he does not really need a college. He can learn them from books. The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks. - Albert Einstein, 1921, commenting on Thomas Edisons opinion that a college education is useless.

Components of the course: Lecture Concepts, depth, association with the rest of life, other disciplines, systematic technique, gotchas, class issues, hints, some problem solving Components of the course: Lecture Lab

Part of your P113 grade. Must do all 5 labs to get a grade in P113. Components of the course: Lecture Text More depth and associations, different approach, problems, not a substitute for lecture or doing problem sets Lab Components of the course:

Lecture Problem sets Text Lab Absolutely critical that you struggle with them and follow thru on particular personal questions/issues,

taken up and graded for effort only Components of the course: Lecture Problem sets Text Workshop Lab
