Prerequisite: B or better in Chemistry and Trigonometry Physics is an advanced two-semester science course that is taught by experimentation in the lab. The first semester consists of the study of force, rectilinear motion, curvilinear motion, work, power and energy. The second semester consists of the study of wave motion, sound, light, optics interference and diffraction. This course is a very intense course and is recommended only for the serious science and math students. Engineering projects consisting of a mousetrap car and a catapult car will be constructed the first and second quarters. The second semester project will be to engineer a miniature roller coaster to enter into a competition at Iowa State University. Physics corresponds to PHY160 in DMACC’s course guide.
