PHYS 1110 Spring 2017
Calculus-based Introductory Physics I

FREE CHAPTER NOTES

The files linked to on this page are provided courtesy of the Fall 2015 PHYS 1110 instructors, Prof. Mike Dubson and Prof. Steve Pollock. Although Prof. Daniel Bolton may use slightly different emphasis in places, the material covered in Spring 2017 will be very similar to that from Fall 2015. The resources on this page are intended as an optional supplement to the primary textbook (Essential University Physics by Wolfson).


From Prof. Dubson:
