Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:

  • Apply the concepts of calorimetry to compute temperature changes, heat loss/gain in conduction and radiation processes, thermal expansion and thermal stress in technological contexts.
  • Demonstrate how vibrations and wave concepts apply, predict modes of vibration in simple systems, and explain the use of sound waves in non-destructive testing.
  • Verify Ohm's Law for DC current and voltage and compute resistivity.
  • Analyze electric and magnetic forces and simple electric circuits.

Effective as of Fall 2003
