### Overview

This is an introductory physics course for non-major science and engineering students.

### Textbook

D. Halliday, R. Resnick, J. Walker Principles of Physics Extended, 9th Edition, Willey, 2011.

### Course Objectives

The course’s objective is to introduce students to the fundamental concepts of physics and their practical applications, and to provide students with a foundation to build upon in their future studies. The course introduces to non-major students physical quantities and measurements, mechanical motion, force, work and energy, and oscillations and waves.

### Course Content

• quantitative measurements, physical quantities, units;
• vectors and operations with with vectors;
• kinematics of mechanical motion and simple mechanical motions;
• dynamics of mechanical motion, Newton’s laws, forces and momentum;
• solving dynamical motion using forces and Newton's laws;
• rotational motion, angular momentum and torque, rolling;
• conservation laws for energy, linear, and angular momentum and their applications;
• oscillatory and wave motion, forced oscillations and resonance, properties of waves, superposition of waves and interference.

### Laboratory Works

The course program includes one laboratory class per week in which students will acquire practical skills in performing and observing physical experiments as well as familiarize themselves with various physical concepts in practice. Attendance of the laboratory is compulsory.

### Self study

Students will be offered one homework assignment per week for self-study and control (not compulsory).

### Exams and Quizzes

The course program includes one midterm and one final exam.

### Evaluation

Students’ final grade is: 15% attendance and class work, 20% laboratory work, 10% quizzes, 15% midterm exam, 40% final exam.
