Mechanics and Thermodynamics

Westerhoff, Stefan
Mechanics and Thermodynamics

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Stefan loves his physics and moreover his astronomy. In fact, many of his final questions dealt with astronomy. All he does in his lectures is prove equations in the book. However, they are quite interesting, but it will not help you on tests. DO THE HOMEWORK. It's the only way to study for the midterms and finals. you are allowed one cheat sheet for the tests so use it wisely. He usually pulls one question from his practice test on his midterms. His final was ridiculous proof problems that you simply can't study for. You just gotta be good. Overall he curves to a B+ where the median grade is a 65. 65-75 is prob an B+. 76-84 is a A-. 85-92 is A. 92+ is A+.

Workload:

On homework set per week due on Thursday ( usually done in a group on wed night), two decent midterms, and one hard ass final.
