Objectives of the Course 
The first year is the basic course for Newtonian mechanics and fluid mechanics for students. The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the principles and basic laws of Newtonian mechanics and to teach them how to apply them to the physical events that occur in daily life. It also prepares students for other highlevel physics courses. This course should be taken at the same time as the laboratory condition.
