In this laboratory-based course, students learn the basic motions of the universe and the equations that describe them. Topics include Newtonian physics, thermal physics and fluid dynamics, waves and optics, electricity and magnetism, and atomic and nuclear physics. Students will perform experiments and interpret the results of observations, activities which involve the assessment of experimental errors and uncertainties.
