PHYC 110 - Introductory Physics

Simple treatment of basic physics principles and phenomena with an emphasis on relating them to events and processes of everyday living. Study of the description and cause of various kinds of motion, conservation laws, hot and cold bodies with heat exchange, sound in music and hearing, light and color perception, electricity and some of its practical uses, observation of atomic particles from radiation sources, and other subjects. There is no math prerequisite; the main emphasis is on understanding the concepts rather than doing many mathematical manipulations.
