PHY 2048 Calculus Physics I

Fall 2006 Section 80182 Four Semester Hours 50/1102

Tuesday & Thursday 9:25 AM – 10:40 PM, Friday 12 – 12:50 PM

Course Website:
This course is the first physics course for students who would like to become a scientist or an engineer. It is the foundation for all remaining physics, other sciences, and engineering studies. The course builds on your previous physics problem-solving skills and provides background that is essential to further study in the sciences and engineering.

Office Hours: TBA in class
A high school physics course with minimum grade of B or Introduction to Physics (PHY 1020C) with minimum grade of B; Calculus I. These are essential. See me after class if you lack this background. This course also involves a lot of algebra and so you will need to brush up on your algebra skills (e.g. solving simultaneous equations) if you are rusty.
Calculus II See me after class if you lack this background.
Physics for Scientists and Engineers: Volume I, Mechanics, Waves, and Heat by Tipler (5th Ed., 2004).

Webnotes (these can be found at the UNF physics homepage listed at the top of this page)

Schaum’s Outline Physics (optional)

Study Guide (Optional)

CD of above textbook (Optional)
The goal of this course is to build on your basic physics concepts and problem-solving skills in the following core areas of physics: classical mechanics (motion); vibrations and waves; and thermodynamics(heat).

The aim is for this course to help you understand fundamental physical principals and to encourage you to learn how to solve physics problems. Here is an overview of topics:
●  vector addition, subtraction and multiplication (dot and cross products)

●  handling units and converting units (e.g. mph to m/s)

●  position, velocity, acceleration, free fall motion, projectile motion, and circular motion (this requires some calculus)

●  Newton’s laws of motion with friction present (mostly algebra of simultaneous equation)

●  work, potential energy, kinetic energy, total energy, and power (some calculus)

●  system of particles, rigid bodies, rotational kinematics and rotational dynamics (some calculus)

●  conservation laws for motion (energy, momentum, and angular momentum)

●  gravitation (force, field, and potential energy)

●  vibratory motion and wave phenomena (springs, standing waves, traveling waves & wave interference) (some calculus and trigonometry here)

● thermodynamics (temperature, heat, internal energy, entropy, calorimetry, heat transfer, ideal gases, specific heat, latent heat, 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics) (some calculus)

I will lecture with ample illustrations and examples. You should read the textbook before class and bring the webnotes to class. The webnotes summarize the textbook for you. Feel free to ask questions in class. Sometimes I will do a demonstration or (rarely) a short film. At times I will ask you to work on a problem in class and then I will present the solution and ask if there are any questions. A substantial fraction of the learning in this class necessarily takes place outside of class as you work on problems. Problem solving is a skill and so it can only be mastered by practice, practice, practice!

This course touches on several areas of importance for general education by

● “demonstrating a general knowledge of current scientific understanding of the history and nature of the universe”

●“demonstrating a general knowledge of the methods and traditions of analysis in the natural sciences”

●“use systematic processes, including the collection and analysis of evidence, to form and support conclusions”

●“demonstrating proficiency in solving problems using mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning”

● “demonstrating a general knowledge of the nature, origins, and contributions of major civilizations”

Homework Quizzesa ………………………...……………….……...…….. 25 points

Semester Examsb 4 x 12.5 pts → 3 x 16.67 ………..……………………… 50 points

Comprehensive Final Exam …...…………………………………………… 23 points

Webnotesc ………….……………………………………………………… 2 points

a I encourage you to work on the problems in teams of two or three people. Each Thursday there will be a quiz over the previous week’s homework problems. There are no make up quizzes. I will drop your lowest quiz score but if your final exam score is greater than your average of the four semester exams, I will drop your two lowest quiz scores.
b Everybody has a bad day every now and then or sometimes has to miss a class. Therefore, I will drop your lowest semester exam score so each of the three remaining scores will count as 50/3 = 16 2/3 points. If you miss a semester exam for any reason, this will be your dropped exam since there are no make ups. I will provide an equation sheet (see website) that you are free to use during the semester exams but not during the quizzes. The exams will be mostly multiple choice but there will be at least one problem on each exam for which you can receive partial credit.
c You will earn two points if you go to the course website, download the webnotes, and bring the webnotes to my office during my office hours before the first exam in the class.
Grading Scale:
100 to 82 A to A- The final class average usually falls in the range 70 to 66, which is B- to C+.

81 to 70 B+ to B- The student with the highest grade in this course and its

69 to 57 C+ to C sequential will win the sophomore physics award.

56 to 47 D

46 F
Free tutoring is available at the Academic Resource Center. Also, feel free to visit me during my office hours. On my website I have included some words of help should you encounter difficulties in the class. I know the only way I learn physics is by taking my own notes as I read and work many problems.
Drop Deadline: November 9, 2006

It is not uncommon for some students in this class to drop the course. This occurs for any number of reasons. Usually this occurs because of a deficiency in algebra or physics problem solving skills. Sometimes a person is trying to pass the course without spending sufficient time on the reading and problems. It is impossible to learn physics by only watching someone else work problems. To learn physics you must work problems yourself and even then problem solving is a skill that only improves via practice. The rule of thumb is, spend three hours outside of class for every hour inside. For this course that rule translates into 12 hours outside study each week and this doesn’t include the lab. See me if you are having difficulties as we proceed and I can try to help you out. Good luck and I hope you enjoy the course!

Below is a tentative schedule. If changes are made they will be announced in class. If you miss a class it is your responsibility to find out about announcements.
