PHYS 100 Physical Science

A course intended to give the non-science major a basic background in principles of physics and chemistry which affect everyone’s life. Fundamental concepts of force, motion, energy, electricity, nuclear reactions and chemistry are covered descriptively in lecture. Mathematics is kept to a minimum, but the student will be exposed to metric measurements, powers-of-ten notation, graphs and simple algebraic relationships. One class hour each week is spent in a laboratory environment where students can “prove” certain principles for themselves.
