l concepts of temperature, equations of state, thermal equilibrium

and the Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics, and the ideal temperature scale.

4.

Derive and apply the definition of heat, specific heat, and heat capacity; apply the principles of

calorimetry, the m
echanical equivalent of heat, heat transfer, work done on and by a gas, and the

coefficient of linear expansion.

5.

Derive and apply the concept of internal energy and the first law of thermodynamics.

6.

Derive and apply the basic equations from kinetic theory,

including the kinetic calculation of pressure

and temperature, the kinetic interpretation of temperature and internal energy, work done on and by

an ideal gas.

7.

Define reversible and irreversible processes, derive the basic equations defining the reversible heat

engine and refrigerator, derive and apply the basic equations describing the Carnot cycle, derive and

apply the concept of entropy and the second law of
thermodynamics.

10.

Derive and apply the basic equations of wave motion, describe mechanical waves and electromagnetic

waves, derive and apply the speed of a traveling wave, the power and the int
ensity of a traveling wave,

and the interference of waves.

11.

PHY 221 Course Policies

Attendance:

The attendance policy for this class is simple. You are all adults who have in some form paid for this class. If you
do not wish to come to any session, you do not have to attend. However, it is your responsibility to make up what
you have missed by not

attending .

Violations of scholastic ethics are considered serious offenses by Pima Community College, the PHY Department
and by your instructor. Students may consult the PCC Student Handbook sections on student code of conduct, on

scholastic ethics and on the grade appeal procedure. Copies are available at PCC campus libraries and at

All work done for this class must be your own. While you may discuss assignments with other class mem
bers,
the final written project must clearly be your own. You may use work from books and other materials if it is
properly cited. Copying from a book without proper reference or from a person under any circumstances will
result in an F for the assignmen
t, and at the instructor's discretion, possibly an F for the course.

Students may consult the PCC Student Handbook sections on student code of conduct, on scholastic ethics and
on the grade appeal procedure. Copies are available at PCC campus libraries and

at

Pima County Community College District strives to comply with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities
Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Students with disab
ilities requiring special accommodations must
notify the instructor of this need or directly contact the Disabled Student Resources Office on your campus at the
beginning of the semester.

Classroom Behavior:

Because of insurance limitations, non
-
r
egistered visitors are not allowed at class sessions or on field trips.

Possession of drugs, alcohol or firearms on college property is illegal.

Eating, drinking, smoking and soliciting are not allowed in classrooms.

Pets, telephones, pagers and other elec
tronic devices that distract students are not allowed in classrooms.

Students creating disturbances that interfere with the conduct of the class or the learning of others will be asked to leave.

Course Feedback:

All assignments and exams will be graded
within one week of submission.

Withdrawals:

You may with
draw with full refu
nd
until May 29, 2009.

Please be sure to withdraw yourself by June 17 if you do not expect to complete the class; otherwise you

.

Students are expected to spend the normal amount of time required for a college course attending class
sessions, doing assignments and research, reading and preparing for exams. The standard Carnegie Unit of college
credit assigns 1 credit hour for each

15 hours of class time and assumes that students spend two hours working
outside the classroom for each hour of classroom instruction. For a four
-
credit course, this translates to 185 hours
per semester or an average of twelve hours per week for a 15/16
-
week semester.

“I” grades are not awarded automatically. The student must request an "I" from the instructor who will judge the student's a
bility
to complete the course on his or her own. Generally the student must have completed over 75% of the course requirements.
Student and instructor fill out a form listing what remains to be completed as well as how and when the work will be done. "
I"
-
evaluated during the final two weeks of the semester when class activities are normally at their most inte
nse.
The course must be completed by Aug 31, 2009.

This grade is no longer available from the College.

Make
-
up Exams:

Make
-
up exams are given in the Testing Center two days after the regularly scheduled exam.

The max
imum score on a make
-
up exam is 80%.

Students will receive a grade transcript from the college mailed to the address given with registration materials at the
end of the semester when all grades have been recorded. For privacy and security reasons, instructors may not post grades an
