TECHNICAL PHYSICS

In this algebra-based overview of topics in technical physics, students explore a variety of concepts and principles, ranging from sound, optics, and remote sensing to force, gravitation and energy as well as basic mechanics. Students apply the principles of these various topics to solve problems, both theoretical and in a lab setting. Lab emphasis is on interpreting the experimental data, examining discrepancies between predicted and observed results and providing explanations for these discrepancies, including error analysis. Lastly, students discuss the role of ethics in the use of technology in physics.
