This course is a pre-calculus-based physics course primarily intended for engineering students. It covers fundamental topics in mechanics, oscillations and heat, with emphasis on the study of forces, motion and the properties of matter and heat. This is the first of two introductory physics courses that revises and expands on selected areas of the high school physics and prepares the engineering student for more advanced topics in physics and engineering. Selected assignments and laboratory exercises are included and are designed to reinforce and expand the student understanding of the fundamental concepts and their application to solving engineering problems.
