Physics 220: Fundamentals

Physics 220 & 221 provide an algebra-based introduction to classical physics. The first semester will cover Kinematics, Dynamics, Rotational Systems, and Thermodynamics. Both courses stress problem-solving skills and the roll of physical phenomena in biological, environmental, and chemical systems. The sequence should enhance your studies in these areas and prepare you for the physics portion of the MCAT.
