Section: 015
Term: FA 2018
Subject: Physics (PHYSICS)
Department: LSA Physics
Credits:
1
Requirements & Distribution:
BS, NS
Credit Exclusions:
No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in PHYSICS 136 or 161.
Enforced Prerequisites:
Corequisite PHYSICS 140 or 160.
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.

PHYSICS 141 is a two-hour weekly laboratory designed to accompany PHYSICS 140. Students make observations, do simulations, analyze their data and compare their results to predictions based on theory. The course material is focused on understanding the principles of classical mechanics.

Electronic waitlists do not function with co-requisites, so PHYSICS 140 and PHYSICS 141 do not have Wolverine Access waitlists. Students who are unable to find a seat in PHYSICS 140 and PHYSICS 141 may email physics.sso@umich.edu to be added to a department-maintained waitlist. In the email, students should include their UMID number with one lab and one lecture section number that works in their schedule. The “paper” waitlists will function in the same manner as Wolverine Access waitlists:

  • Only students who are not already enrolled in the course will be able to join the waitlist.
  • Students may be on the waitlist for only section at a time.
  • Students will be removed from the waitlist after an electronic permission is issued.

Course Requirements:

Students are graded on in-class performance and laboratory reports submitted at the end of each lab period. Students are expected to complete 11 experiments in this course during the Fall term and 12 experiments during the Winter term.

Intended Audience:

This laboratory is intended for students interested in the physics and engineering who are taking the PHYSICS 140/240 course sequence. Note that Physics 140 and Physics 141 need to be taken concurrently and will result in one letter grade for both courses.

Class Format:

One two-hour period of laboratory work each week. There are eight stations in the classroom, and students work in groups of three.
