Physics I

Physics I covers basic Newtonian Mechanics and Energy, Waves and Acoustics, and Thermodynamics. Calculus was developed by Newton and Leibniz in order to do Physics and Engineering as we know it today. A solid understanding of Calculus is needed to do Physics. 

The prerequisites for this course are: Calculus I

This course is a co- or prerequisite for: Calculus II,  Physics II
