**Mechanics and Waves (Q)**

This course covers the same topics as Physics 131, but with a higher level of mathematical sophistication. It is intended for students with solid backgrounds in the sciences, either from high school or college, who feel comfortable solving "word problems" that require calculus.

**lecture, three hours per week; laboratory, three hours every other week; conference section, one hour every other week**

*Class Format:***evaluation will be based on weekly problem sets, labs, 2 one-hour tests, and a final exam, all of which have a substantial quantitative component**
