KING FAHD UNIVERSITY OF PETROLEUM AND MINERALS_________________

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS

 

Physics 101 - General Physics I

Fall 2003 (Term 031)

Course Description:

The topics covered include particle kinematics and dynamics; conservation of energy and linear momentum; rotational kinematics; rigid body dynamics; conservation of angular momentum; simple harmonic motion; the static and dynamics of fluids.

 

Co-requisite: MATH 101

 

Textbook:

"Fundamentals of Physics", by Halliday, Resnick and Walker, sixth Edition, John Wiley & Sons, Inc (2001).

 

Teaching Method:

The course material will be presented in lectures (3 hrs. per week). Problem solving techniques will be shown in recitations (1 hr. per week). The understanding of concepts learned in the lectures will be strengthened by laboratory work (3 hrs. per week). Lab sessions will start during the second week of the semester. Solutions to the homework problems will be posted on the Physics 101 notice board according to the posted schedule. Office hours (OH) of the instructors may better be utilized for clarifying the course material and developing problem solving skills on a regular basis. Please see the master list of OH for identifying the instructor who is available at a particular time.

 

Attendance:

Attendance in lectures, recitations and labs is compulsory. It will be enforced and evaluated according to the current university regulations. A DN grade shall be given to the student who has 3 absences in labs or 12 unexcused absences in (lectures + recitations) or the combination of both. Student who has valid excuse for his absence must present officially authorized document to his instructor no later than one week following his resumption to the classes. Only those students who have less than 6 absences in the whole semester shall be promoted to upper grade if they reach the borderline between two grades (for example F to D or B to B+ etc.).

 

Grading Policy:

Class work 10% Grades: A+ 80 53 C < 60

Lab work 20% 77 A < 80 47 D+ < 53

Major Exam I 20% 73 B+ < 77 41 D < 47

Major Exam II 20% 67 B < 73 F < 41

Final Exam 30% 60 C+ < 67

_______________________

Total 100%

 

(a) Class work (with average score 6.0/10):

The class score shall be derived from students performance in quizzes/class test. The quizzes/class test will be of problem solving type. Home works will not be collected. However, the quizzes may contain problems similar to Home work problems.

(b) Lab work (with average score 14.0/20):

The lab score shall be derived from a combination of lab reports/quizzes, and lab final exam.

(c) Exams:

All exams will be of multiple choice type. A sheet of important formulae (not definitions) will be provided in all exams. First Major Exam: 19/10/2003, Second Major Exam: 8/12/2003, Final Exam: ~10/1/2004. No cell telephones are allowed in the examination rooms.

Make-up Exam Policy:

Student who has missed an exam with valid excuse must present officially authorized document to the course coordinator within 3 days after the exam for a make-up. If not, the score for that exam will be zero. Personal excuses are not welcomed.

 

Please see the next pages for exam dates and homework assignment.
