COURSE SYLLABUS Revised: Effective SY 2005-2006 I. COURSE NUMBER PHYSICS 2 II. DESCRIPTIVE TITLE Applied Physics III. RATIONALE OF THE COURSE Applied Physics deals with general laws of Physics that apply universally in all physical situations. In Applied Physics, general laws are used to study the more specialized laws that apply to matter in each of its three states: gas, liquid, and solid. Important topics include energy transformations involving the atoms and molecules of which matter is made, the strength of the materials is also presented. Fundamental principles of fluid mechanics, laws of thermodynamics, and physical concepts of electrostatics are also included. IV. COURSE DESCRIPTION

The subject is divided into five parts. The first part covers the application of the physical properties of solids, liquids, and gases. The second part deals with the strength of the material in terms of elasticity, stress, strain, and Hookes law. The third part deals with the physical principles involved in fluids such as Archimedes and Bernoullis principles. The fourth part deals with temperature and heat, mechanisms of heat transfer and calorimetry, first and second law thermodynamics processes. The fifth part deals with the physics of charges at rest, Direct Current (DC) and Alternating Current (AC) circuits. The physical concepts involved are Coulombs law, Ohms law, and basic electric circuit theory. V. COURSE OBJECTIVES At the end of this course, the students should be able to 1. develop the analytical thinking skills through problem solving that carry over in the students personal and professional lives.

223 2. better understand how the physical principles affect the aesthetic sense thereby relating and appreciating the importance of the physical properties of matter, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and electricity. 3. increase the students repertoire of elastic, fluid, mechanical, thermodynamics, and electrical concepts and how they are applied to real situations.
