This three-semester physics sequence is designed to give the student majoring in engineering, physics, or chemistry a thorough foundation in the fundamentals of physics.

PHYS 250 PHYSICS WITH CALCULUS I – The first semester of a three-semester sequence of calculus-based physics. Designed to give students majoring in engineering, physics or chemistry a thorough foundation in the fundamentals of physics. Covers Newtonian mechanics, including gravitation and mechanical oscillations. The laboratory portion covers measurement and analysis of phenomena discussed in lecture. Transfer credit: UC; CSU (B1, B3).

PHYS 260 PHYSICS WITH CALCULUS II – The second semester of a three-semester sequence of calculus-based physics (may also be taken as the third semester). Designed to give students majoring in engineering, physics or chemistry a thorough foundation in the fundamentals pf physics. Covers electricity, magnetism and electromagnetic waves. The laboratory portion covers measurement and analysis of phenomena discussed in lecture. Transfer credit: UC; CSU (B1, B3).

PHYS 270 PHYSICS WITH CALCULUS III – The third semester of a three-semester sequence of calculus-based physics (may also be taken directly after PHYS 250). Designed to give students majoring in engineering, physics or chemistry a thorough foundation in the fundamentals of physics. Covers fluids, thermodynamics, waves and light, and modern physics. The laboratory portion covers measurement and analysis of phenomena discussed in lecture. Transfer credit: UC; CSU (B1, B3).
