The Physics program at Hartnell College offers course work for a diverse range of students from the community--starting with those merely wishing to learn more of the world around them and finishing with the student pursuing a four-year degree in science or engineering.
Physics courses are available at three different levels, all of which will satisfy the needs of students wishing to transfer to four-year colleges and universities. The level of the physics course that students initially enroll in is largely dependent on their individual math skills.

Upon successful completion of the Physics program, a student should be able to:
• comprehend and articulate basic physics terminology.
• demonstrate proficiency in problem solving, especially with regard to basic physics problems involving major concepts, theories, and principles including, but not limited to:
• conservation of momentum and energy.
• Newtonian mechanics.
• Maxwell’s laws.
• fluid dynamics.
• collect and analyze data effectively using basic laboratory equipment and present results in formally structured laboratory reports
