Objectives of the Course
This course is intended to give an introductory physics to students majoring in science or engineering. The aims of the course are two fold: one is to provide the student with a clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles of physics, and the other is to strengthen an understanding of the concepts and principles through a broad range of interesting applications to real world.
