PHYS 014 - Physics for Future Leaders
Every leader would like to save the world, but an understanding of how things work -both natural and man-made - is the first step towards achieving that goal. The focus of this course is to help students begin to become knowledgeable and articulate about the physics and technological aspects of important issues. We will emphasize a conceptual understanding of the physical principles that underlie many technological advances and natural phenomena. The topics covered may vary but may include the physics behind the smartphone and the MRI, as well as the physics that underlies natural phenomena, such as the greenhouse effect and global climate change. This course has no prerequisites.
