This course will cover kinematics in one and two dimensions, as well as forces and vectors. Students will study work, energy, and power that will then lead into the study of momentum and the conservation of energy. Circular motion and gravitation, translational and rotational equilibrium, fluid mechanics and thermal physics will be covered. The students will study electricity and magnetism then look at waves and optics. A final subject area will be atomic and nuclear physics. Good math skills are critical to success in this course.
