PHYS 15 Introductory Physics I, Honors Section

PHYS 15 and PHYS 16 is an alternative sequence to PHYS 13, PHYS 14 and 19 for students whose substantial background in physics and mathematics enables them to study the material at a faster pace than is possible in regular sections, and who are willing to devote correspondingly more work to the course. Admission criteria are described in the First Year, available from the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students. Classical dynamics of particles and rigid bodies. Special Relativity. Introduction to Quantum Mechanics including the wave-particle duality of radiation and matter, the Uncertainty Principle and the Schrödinger equation in one and three spatial dimensions. One laboratory period per week.




MATH 8 or MATH 9 concurrently, and permission of the instructor.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
