General guidance - Physics & Statics

Here's 2 simple questions :)

1) Should I take Physics I or Statics first?
2) Should I take them together?

As a side note, I've only taken Calc I and Calc II...I plan on taking Diff Eqs along with the above in the same semester.

Thanks for any opinions on this!

Phy 1 before statics. In statics you use a decent amount of stuff from Phy 1. Mainly Newton's 2nd Law with a = 0. But also moments of inertia and center of mass calculations, which I am pretty sure I also learned in phy 1. But could be wrong.

Thanks, that's pretty much what I thought. :)
