PSCI 1010 - Principles of Physical Science with Lab

Credits: 4

Course only offered through TN eCampus
Designed for the non-science major to partially fulfill general education requirements in the physical sciences. This course includes a study of three fundamental components of physical sciences: Newtonian mechanics; linear motion, momentum, energy, gravity, and satellite motion; fluid mechanics; thermodynamics including thermal energy and heat transfer; electricity, magnetism; waves, sound and light waves, the properties of light, and atomic structure to establish a base in which the non-science student can view nature more perceptively. It is designed to correct a missing essential in the sciences, the practice of conceptualizing before calculating.

Prerequisite(s): Satisfactory placement test scores or completion of all Competencies in Learning Support Reading, Writing, and Math.
