4
Requirements & Distribution:
BS, NS, QR/1
Other:
Theme
Credit Exclusions:
No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in PHYSICS 135, 140 or 160.
Advisory Prerequisites:
Two and one-half years of high school mathematics, including trigonometry. PHYSICS 125 and 127 are normally elected concurrently.
BS:
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
Repeatability:
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

PHYSICS 125 and 126 constitute a two-term sequence offered primarily for students concentrating in the natural sciences, architecture, pharmacy, or natural resources; and for preprofessional students preparing for medicine, dentistry, or related health sciences. PHYSICS 125 and 126 are an appropriate sequence for any student wanting a quantitative introduction to the basic principles of physics but without the mathematical sophistication of PHYSICS 140 and 240. Strong emphasis is placed on problem solving, and skills in elementary algebra and trigonometry are assumed. While a high school level background in physics is not assumed, it is helpful. PHYSICS 125 and 126 are not available by the Keller plan.

PHYSICS 125 covers classical mechanics (laws of motion, force, energy, and power) and mechanical wave motion (including sound waves). The final course grade is based on three one-hour evening examinations, class performance, and a final examination. PHYSICS 127 should be taken concurrently.
