This course serves as an introduction to Physics, especially for students who are not science oriented. A selected number of basic physical ideas are carefully examined and interpreted with a minimum amount of mathematics. The relevance of the scientist and his/her work to the lives of non-scientists is continually examined.

1. To provide a broad general understanding of the structure and function of the physical universe.
2. To provide a basic understanding of the principles and laws concerning mechanics, heat, sound, light , electricity, magnetism, atomic physics and relativity theory.
3. To provide a basic understanding of the “Scientific Method” through the execution of physical experiments.
4. To learn some basic quantitative skills such as reading and interpreting simple equations, and to make and interpret simple graphs.
