PHYSICS 125-2 General Physics for ISP or PHYSICS 140-3 Fundamentals of Physics may be substituted for PHYSICS 135-2 General PhysicsPHYSICS 125-3 General Physics for ISP or PHYSICS 140-3 Fundamentals of Physics may be substituted for PHYSICS 135-3 General Physics. Associated labs are PHYSICS 126-2 Physics for ISP Laboratory or PHYSICS 136-2 General Physics Laboratory and PHYSICS 126-3 Physics for ISP Laboratory or PHYSICS 136-3 General Physics Laboratory.
