Student Learning Outcomes

Course Name: Engineering Physics
Course Number: PHYS 4A
Course Objectives:
  • Physics 4A students will be able to calculate the moment of inertia of a typical continuous body.
  • Students will be able to design an experiment to find the rotational inertia of an object.
  • Students will be able to apply the material from the course to real life situations.
  • Students will analytically predict the period of a physical pendulum, then design an experiment to measure the period.
  • Students will be able to propagate uncertainty.
  • Students will be able to correctly analyze non-constant forces that vary with time or position.
  • Students will be able to experimentally and analytically find the period of a physical pendulum.
  • Students will be able to draw free body diagrams appropriate to the situation presented.
  • Students will be able to integrate with respect to mass over objects and apply that knowledge to be able to solve problems related to center of mass, moment of inertia and gravitational field of objects.
  • Students will be able to write up lab findings scientifically.
