Phyllis Fleming Physics

 The courses called Physics 104 and Physics 106 are usually associated with physics courses for premed students. Those called Physics 107 and Physics 108 are for majors in astronomy, chemistry, engineering and physics. I have divided each course into seven or eight parts. For each part there is (1) an Outline of the material covered in (2) the Problem Sets and (3) the Solutions to the Problem Sets. For Physics 104 and Physics 107, the parts are: One Dimensional Motion, Two Dimensional Motion, Newton's Laws, Work and Energy, Momentum, Angular Motion, Simple Harmonic Motion, and Wave Motion. For Physics 106 and Physics 108, the parts are: Electric Fields, Potential and Capacitance, Circuits, Magnetic Fields, Induction, Geometric Optics, and Physical Optics. You can call up any part of any course using the links below:
