(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Hi I'm taking a new course of physics for the fall semester and was wondering if any of you have an idea of what I'm taking. Thanks in advance. This is what the course says:

Characteristics and objectives of the course:

This course is basic to all engineering careers and introduces students to the study of dynamics, second and third law of Newton, from a theoretical and experimental. Students learn to describe quantitatively the motion of an object and verify its modeling through experiments in the laboratory. The course requires students to possess skills to perform operations with vectors, solving systems of linear equations and manage basic concepts of trigonometry and analytic geometry.

At the end of the course the student is expected to:

* Know and understand:

• The laws and principles that govern the motion of a particle, and identify applications of these laws in his career.

* Know:

• Measure the correct local acceleration of gravity.

• Correctly calculate the physical quantities that describe the dynamics of the particle in rectilinear motion with friction using the stroboscope.

• Correctly calculate the physical quantities that describe the dynamics of the particle in a circular motion without friction using the stroboscope.

• Build a prototype to demonstrate unequivocally at least one conservation principle.
