Official course description: This course is an introductory calculus-based course in non-relativistic classical mechanics and thermodynamics. The topics and examples are selected to prepare prospective physics majors for Physics 114 and 262 and to align with the new MCAT exam. Specifically, the first half of the course will be on the basics of forces, motion, work and energy, and momentum. The second half of the course will be applications to oscillations and waves, stochastic motion and thermodynamics, fluids, and statistical physics.
