Sacramento City College Physics

Physics is the scientific study of fundamental and universal phenomena. It explores the natural relationships that help us understand and predict the motion, organization and interaction of the most basic and measurable constituents of our physical existence. Physics, like all sciences, requires careful and continual observation and testing of its ideas, working hand-in-hand with creativity, imagination and an open mind.

Physics courses include conceptual and general physics, mechanics of solids and fluids, electricity, magnetism, heat, waves, light, and related topics.
