PHYS 120 - Physics and Poets


3 Credit(s)

Gen Ed: SP credit.
Like poetry, physics is a creative activity that engages the emotions and intellect. In this course, mathematics is kept at a minimum and great effort is made to illuminate the concepts, structure, and developments as well as beauty in the guiding principles of basic physics. Creative activities of a physicist will be compared to those of a poet. Elementary mathematics will be used in solving problems, which illustrate the concepts. Lecture demonstrations and laboratory projects are integral parts of the course. As warranted, usually in Winter.
