Web Page: http://www.hccfl.edu/facultyinfo/dsaludes/index.html Office Hours: Posted on instructor’s webpage. Class Schedule: M, T, W, TH 10:15 AM – 12:15 PM Course Description: First semester of a two-semester sequence of general physics (mechanics, wave motion, sound, thermodynamics, optics, electricity and magnetism, selected topics from modern physics). College level reading, writing, and math skills are required. Prerequisite: MAC 2311 or Calculus I with grade of C or better Corequisite: PHY 2048L In addition to the above pre- and corequisites, it is strongly recommended that the student have a good understanding of the basic, non-quantitative concepts of physics, as would be gained by taking PHY1025 and PHY1025L, or a one-year high school physics class. Course Objectives: The student will demonstrate proficiency in the following areas: * Metric and British units calculations and conversions *1-D, 2-D and 3-D Linear and Angular kinematics problem solutions *1-D, 2-D and 3-D Linear and Angular dynamics problem solutions * Mechanical Energy problem solutions * Linear and Angular Momentum problem solutions * Fluid Statics and Dynamics and Elasticity problem solutions * Gravitational and Orbital problem solutions * Temperature and Thermal Properties problem solutions * Zeroth, 1st and 2nd Law of Thermodynamics problem solutions
Text Book: Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Serway and Jewett, 6th ed Please bring your textbook to each class meeting, as I will be referring to tables and diagrams in the book throughout the course.
Calculator: You will need a scientific calculator with trigonometric functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and the ability to solve polynomials and systems of linear equations. It is important that you learn how to use the above-mentioned functions on your calculator, and that you become familiar with the functioning of your calculator in general, in order to maximize your chances of arriving at the correct solutions to the exam questions.

Grading System: The Grading policy outlined in the 2007-2008 HCC Catalog will be followed. Your final grade will be determined by averaging together your results on 4 class exams. The following grading scale will be used: A : 90 – 100
B: 80 – 89
C: 70 – 79
D: 60 – 69
F: 59 or below
Missed Exams: Failure to take an exam at the assigned time, for any reason, will result in a grade of zero for that exam. A make-up exam may be given, at the discretion of the instructor, in the case that a verifiable and documentable medical condition or other emergency prevents a student from taking a test at the assigned time. In the case that you know in advance that you must miss a test, a make-up exam may be given, at the discretion of the instructor, if proper arrangements are made beforehand. Academic Dishonesty Policy: Any student caught cheating on an exam or engaging in any other form of academic dishonesty will be given either a "0" grade on that exam or an "F" as the final course grade, at the discretion of the instructor.
Attendance Policy: While the final grade for the course will be determined solely based on exam results, please be aware that class attendance is highly correlated with success on the exams. The exams will be based on both material from the textbook and material covered in class not contained in the textbook. In addition, the Attendance policy outlined in the 2007-2008 HCC Catalog will be followed. Instructional Methods: The class will consist of a combination of lectures, demonstrations, multi-media presentations and exercises, and will be supplemented by the experiments done in the associated laboratory class (PHY 2048L) Assignments: Suggested homework problems from the textbook will be posted on the class web page. While the homework will be neither collected nor graded, you are advised that correctly working out the solutions to the suggested homework problems will greatly increase your understanding of the class material and, consequently, increase the student's chance of success on the exams. Exam questions will be based on a combination of assigned homework problems and problems done in class. Solutions to all assigned homework problems will be available at the Reference Desk at the Dale Mabry campus Library. Tutoring Center: The HCC Dale Mabry Campus Tutoring Center is an excellent learning resource that all students should take advantage of. The center offers trained tutors in most subject areas including physics, and math and is open Monday through Saturday. The Tutoring Center is located in DSSC 322 and their phone number is 253-7445. Request for Accommodations: Any student whose disabilities fall within American Disabilities Act (ADA) must inform the instructor at the beginning of the term of any special needs or equipment necessary to accomplish the requirements for this course. To arrange for special accommodations for individuals with disabilities contact the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities. The office is located in the Student Services Building Room 204 or call 813-259-6035. Additional Important Information: That's the official stuff. In addition, it is your my ardent desire that you learn to solve real-world problems like the ones in the assigned homework by applying the principles of physics, that you learn to see the world quantitatively (where appropriate) and that you become comfortable creating mathematical models of physical situations and processes. This course is quite challenging due to the large scope of material to be covered. A thorough understanding of the concepts covered in the course will be invaluable to your success in succeeding science, technology and engineering classes. Reading the chapters and answering the assigned questions and problems will be your best assurance of being successful and earning a good grade in the course. If you have any difficulty with the assigned problems, PLEASE bring them up either in class or during my office hours.
