About the Physics 2A class......

Physics 2A is the first in a sequence of two introductory general physics courses for physics and engineering majors. This course focuses on the fundamentals of mechanics and thermodynamics. The topical content of this course is, typically: kinematics, Newton's laws, energy and momentum conservation, rotational kinematics and dynamics, gravitation, and fluids. It is VERY important that the student has a very good command of algebra and trigonometry.
