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.
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
