More About The Course

This is the 3rd course in UCI’s introductory sequence on classical physics, in which rigorous and quantitative mathematical modeling is used to explain and predict physical phenomena. This introductory series helps students develop a physical understanding of their surroundings and of the technologies found in everyday life. In this course, students study the behavior of fluids, waves, sound, and light. This course uses MasteringPhysics for homework. Each student must obtain a MasteringPhysics account to earn credit for homework and to complete weekly quizzes.
