Learning Outcomes: 

Upon succesful completion of this course, a student will be able to
1. Convert the verbal description of a problem into the language of physics, sketch a diagram to analyze it in terms of the given physical quantities and those to be found.
2. Choose among the fundamental laws of physics, like conservation of energy and momentum or three laws of Newton, expressed in mathematical equations that involve the physical quantities, appearing in the description of any given problem, and then solvethem for the unknowns.
3. Determine the correct number of significant figures for each parameter in the given problem; perform calculations using estimates of order of magnitudes, and carry out unit algebra.
4. Utilize the vector notation in order to separate the two or three dimensional problems into their components along different Cartesian directions and solve each independently.
5. Utilize differentiation and integration in terms of slope of a curve and area under a curve, respectively, in determining related physical quantities from each other, or in calculating derivative or integral of simple functions like polynomials.
6. Express verbally and in writing the concepts of physics, processes and results in mechanics, effectively and competently.
