PHYS 910LA - Mechanics and Relativity (Lab)


2 credits
This course can only be taken by students who have completed PHYS 910LE. It consists of the laboratory part of PHYS 110: a study of Newtonian mechanics and special relativity, focusing on conceptual understanding, problem solving and laboratory work. Topics include point-particle dynamics, conservation principles, oscillation, systems of particles, rotation; time dilation, length contraction, and the relativity of simultaneity. This is the first course in a three-semester calculus-based introductory sequence.
Prerequisites & Notes: This is a stand alone Lab course that can only be taken by students who have completed PHYS910LE.
Students must complete PHYS 910LA to receive a final grade for PHYS 910LE. The transcript grade for PHYS 910LE will appear as an asterisk until completion of PHYS 910LA. Grades for lecture and lab will be combined for a final grade.

Prerequisite: MATH 133.
Concurrent or prior enrollment in MATH 134 is highly recommended as it is a prerequisite for PHYS 111.
