View Full Version : 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?

I suggest you take a look at this thread (http://cboard.cprogramming.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=46133&perpage=15&pagenumber=2) 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.
