Physics of Everyday Life
Credits: 3Catalog #20806220
Have you ever looked at something and said to yourself "I wonder how that works?" If so, this is the course for you. The Physics of Everyday Life will explore basic principles of physics including classical mechanics, fluids, heat, resonance, waves, light and electricity and magnetism through the lens of everyday objects. We will gain insight through studying objects such as bumper cars, roller coasters, light bulbs, musical instruments and microwave ovens.
Note: Fees for fall classes are not displayed at this time because tuition rates are not yet defined by the Wisconsin Technical College System Board. Rather than provide incorrect information, no fees for fall classes will be displayed until tuition rates are received. It is estimated that fall fees will be displayed later in May 2015. Once fees are available, updated costs will appear in your student financial account.
