Phy 1110 Principles of Physics I
Instructor: Guy Vandegrift email:guy.vandegrift@wright.edu
236-Dwyer Hall Wright State University Lake Campus, Celina OH 45822


Fundamental physics of mechanics. Topics include laws of motion, work and energy, momentum, circular and rotational motion, gravity, fluids, mechanical waves and thermodynamics (4 credit hours.) Also required is the lab PHY2410L: Introductory physics laboratory problems in mechanics, oscillation and thermodynamics (1 credit hour.)

Prerequisites: Undergraduate level MTH 1280 Minimum Grade of D or WSU Math Placement Level 40

Corequisites: PHY1110L; PHY1110R

The students in the introductory physics class will be expected to:

  1. Understand the nature of scientific inquiry
  2. Critically apply knowledge of physical theory to a variety of physical problems
  3. Distinguish between science and technology and recognize their roles in society
  4. Demonstrate an awareness of theoretical, practical, creative and cultural dimensions of scientific inquiry
  5. Communicate an understanding of the basic physical principles.

Test bank[edit | edit source]

This bank currently contains 259 questions and is an Open Educational Resource. But some questions on exams might not appear in the bank. The "study" version contains one rendition of each problem. For more practice use "all" version. This pdf file is much larger because it contains 10 or more renditions of each numerical question, each with a different set of numerical values.

Topics Covered in a 15 week course[edit | edit source]

This bank currently contains 274 questions and is an Open Educational Resource. The volume and chapter refer to OpenStax University Physics. The Bank section column refers to section numbers in the study guide's table of contents that contain relevant questions to each unit. This bank also contains calculus-based problems that are not part of this course. The relevant quezzes are marked with an asterisk (*), and while no problems from these quizzes are deemed "essential", questions from those quizzes that do not require calculus might appear on exams.

Assessment[edit | edit source]

40% Scheduled tests (every other week)
20% Cumulative final exam
20% Lab reports and weekly labs
10% Quizzes 10% Final report

Lab reports are due via Pilot on Friday after each of the scheduled There is no provision for allowing the 7 scheduled quizzes to be taken after the test date. But extra quizzes might be necessary to allow students to compensate for low test scores or missed quizzes, and for that reason daily attendance is required. Attendance will be taken at every lecture and lab.

==Getting help==

Writing: Because writing is such an important part of a college education, the Student Success Center provides free writing support to all Wright State students, at any stage of your writing process and for any class. I encourage you to visit the SSC for help with any aspect of your writing, from research to revision. Sessions are available M-Th by appointment or walk-in from 10-5 pm and Fridays by appointment only from 10-5. To make an appointment, stop by the SSC (182 Andrews Hall) or call 419-586-0333. For more information about the SSC, their hours, and scheduling, please visit: https://lake.wright.edu/campus-life/student-success-center.

Math: The Student Success Center offers free assistance to students enrolled in mathematics courses within the Wright State Catalog. I encourage you to visit the SSC for help with any aspect of math above DEV. Sessions are available M-Th by appointment or walk-in from 10-5 pm and Fridays by appointment only from 10-5 pm. To make an appointment, stop by the SSC (182 Andrew Hall) or call 419-586-0333. For more information about the SSC, their hours, and scheduling, please visit: https://lake.wright.edu/campus-life/student-success-center.

LTC: The Library & Technology Center provides free access to scholarly resources in all formats to all Wright State students. WSU students can also visit the LTC for assistance with creating or editing multimedia projects i.e. PowerPoint, Voiceovers, Website development, etc., free of charge. The LTC is temporarily located in 182 Andrews Hall. For additional information about the LTC and the services they provide please call (419) 586-0333, or visit the LTC M-Fri from 9am-5pm

Office of Disability Services: If a student has a disability that will require special accommodations, it is essential that he or she discuss it with the instructor and/or The Office of Disability Services (ODS) before or during the first week of the semester. ODS will work with these students on an individual basis to determine what services, equipment, and accommodations would be appropriate regarding their documented needs. Students who may qualify for these types of services should initiate contact with the instructor and/ or ODS as soon as possible to enable the university to meet their needs.  Please call Deanna Springer at 419-586-0366, email deanna.springer@wright.edu or visit ODS (Rm 182 Andrews) for more information.
