College Catalog Fall 2004 - Spring 2006
PHYS

PHYS 150 GENERAL PHYSICS I

Linear motion, force, work and mechanical energy, power, torque, rotational motion, temperature, and heat are studied. This is a non-calculus course, but competence in high school algebra, plane geometry, and plane trigonometry is assumed. (NS)

Prerequisites: MATH 128 and MATH 138, or equivalent

(4: 3, 3)

PHYS 155 GENERAL PHYSICS II

This is the second course in a two-course, algebra-based physics sequence. Major topics include wave motion, electrostatics, circuit elements and their behavior, simple DC circuits, digital circuits, magnetism, electromagnetic induction, AC circuits, and optics. (NS)

Prerequisite: PHYS 150 or permission of the instructor

(4: 3, 3) Spring

PHYS 210 PHYSICS I: MECHANICS, HEAT, AND SOUND

This is the first calculus-based physics course for science and engineering students. Emphasis is placed on mechanics, i.e., kinematics, kinetics, work-energy, and impulse-momentum. An introduction to wave motion and to thermodynamics is provided. (NS)

Prerequisite or corequisite: MATH 210 or permission of the instructor.

(4: 3, 3) Fall

PHYS 215 PHYSICS II: ELECTRICITY AND OPTICS

This is the second course in a three-course, calculus-based physics sequence. Topics include electrostatics, electric and magnetic fields, potential, DC circuits, digital circuits, magnetism, electromagnetic induction, capacitance, inductance, introduction to AC circuits, and geometrical optics. (NS)

Prerequisites: PHYS 210 and MATH 215

(4: 3, 3)

PHYS 220 PHYSICS III: ATOMIC PHYSICS

This is the third course in a three-course, calculus-based physics sequence. Topics include physical optics, relativity, quantum mechanics, atomic structure, solid state physics, nuclear physics, and developments in modern physics. (NS)

Prerequisites: PHYS 215 and MATH 220

(4: 3, 3)

PHYS 290 INDEPENDENT STUDY IN PHYSICS

This independent study course is designed to permit individual students to pursue topics or projects approved by supervising faculty.

Prerequisites:

1. Completion of at least one semester's work in a degree program at SUNY Delhi.

2. A cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00, unless there are extenuating circumstances.

3. At least 3 credit hours in one foundation course, specific to the discipline, with the permission of the Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

4. No more than 6 semester hours of work in independent study may be taken during any one semester, and no more than a total of 15 semester hours in independent study may be applied toward an associate's degree. The total number of semester hours in independent study toward a bachelor's degree is dependent on the specific bachelor's program.

5. The student and his/her sponsor will prepare and submit to the Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences an Independent Study contract proposal for approval.

(1-4: 1-4, 0) or, if lab included, (2: 1, 3) (3: 2, 3) or (4: 3, 3) Offered on request
