University Physics I is the first course in a two semester, calculus based university physics sequence. The goal of this course is to introduce students to the concepts of force and motion, work and energy, simple harmonic motion, and waves. The class meets for three hours each week in lecture, two hours each week in recitation, and two hours each week in the lab. This course assumes no prior background in physics.
This course continues the development of the basic physical concepts begun in SC273. Topics include electricity, magnetism, and optics. The class meets for three hours each week in lecture, two hours each week in recitation, and two hours each week in the
This course is a hands-on laboratory component of the SC 393, covering topics in kinetics, thermodynamics, transport, and spectroscopy. The laboratory exercises apply physical methods to studies of complex physicochemical phenomena. Computer simulations of molecular properties complement the measurements. Three hours of laboratory per week.
This course is a hands-on introduction to the fundamental techniques of analytical chemistry. It covers sample treatment and volumetric, gravimetric, electrochemical, chromatographic, and spectroscopic analytical methods. Three hours of laboratory per week are designed to supplement and reinforce the knowledge gained in the SC 394.
