Comment: A key thing to learn in physics is how to solve problems you have never seen before by applying a few simple principles. The one step most students leave out that an "expert" never leaves out is called "draw a picture" or "draw it again". Many problems will literally solve themselves when you draw the picture, and this also helps you identify what question to ask yourself that will help bring a multi-step problem into better focus.
Note: Extra handouts are normally placed in a folder outside room SM 290.
Note that this class has Calculus I (MAC2311) as a prerequisite
of corequisite and that PHY 2048L
must also be taken at the same time as PHY 2048 if you have not already passed the lab with a "C".
