    what physics courses

    Well, its coming pretty close to pre-registration time for the next semester at my college, and I was wondering about what physics courses would you reccomend I take next semester as I am hopefully going to be able to knock off a few of the first year programming courses and fill that with stuff I want to do. Optical physics intrigues me, but I dont have that good of a background in physics(none calculus anyway). So I was wondering what TWO physics courses should I take to get the most out of it?

    thanks,

    I suggest you take a look at this thread as we started talking about some physics there.

    I think you should begin with phys 1 calc based. I don't know of a school that does not require Phys 1 and then 2 as a prereq for other higher level phys courses.

    some entropy with that sink? entropysink.com
