PHYS 1020 - General Physics 1
(Lab required) It's a crazy world; come and find out why objects fall, slide, bounce, stick, go in circles or stay straight, float or sink, glide or crash. Why don't satellites fall to the ground? What exactly does weightlessness mean anyway? Find answers to these and other questions as you get to know Newton's and other basic laws of nature and see what makes the world go round. This course, together with the sequel PHYS 1030, is recommended for students seeking either a single, comprehensive course in Physics, or entry into health science programs. It may also be used for entry into the Honours Physics program (" B+" or better) or the Major Physics program ("B" or better). May not be held with PHYS 1021, PHYS 1050, PHYS 1051, the former PHYS 1410, or the former PHYS 1420. Prerequisites: (one of Physics 40S, PHYS 0900 (P), PSKL 0100 (P), PHYS 1018, or equivalent) and (one of Pre-calculus Mathematics 40S, Applied Mathematics 40S (with 70% or better), MSKL 0100, MATH 1018, or equivalent). It is strongly recommended that students attain a minimum of 70% as the average of their marks in Physics 40S and Pre-calculus Mathematics 40S.
