Section  comments 
1.14; 1.6  students who do not know this should take PHY 125 
1.5  uncertainty & precision: important & covered in Lab 1, not in lecture 
Ch1 pp 2830  "vector product": not to be discussed; not needed until PHY 132 
Ch9 pp 34849  *moment of inertia calculations will be required
only
for 1d (p347) or for discrete systems of point masses. You should understand carefully what table 9.2 is all about, but don't memorize the particular cases. The derivations in section 9.6 are an important exercise in multidimensional calculus but will not be required in PHY 131. 
Chapter 10

**The vector nature of torque and angular momentum and
angular
velocity will not be used much in this course. We will focus on rotations around a fixed axis where the torque, angular velocity, and angular momentum are onedimensional vectors  that is ordinary real numbers with magnitude and sign. Neutron stars are outstanding examples of angular momentum. See, for example, problem 10.90, and read Jocelyn Bell Burnell's wonderful account of her discovery on the web. 
10.6

omit  Gyroscopes and precession are an example of rotations beyond one dimension and will not be emphasized in this course. 
11.5

***omit plasticity  the complicated behavior beyond the proportional limit will not be considered in this course. 
12.6  omit  spherical mass distributions look to outside observers like point masses at the origin; students will learn how prove this in PHY 132 using Gauss's Law. 
12.8  omit black holes; sorry  no time for fun 
14.6  omit viscosity and turbulence  no time for this either Memorize: 1 atm = 1.03 x 10^{5} Pa, 1 Pa = 1 N/m^{2}, 1 g/cm^{3} = 10^{3} kg/m^{3} 
16  Sound & Hearing  omit 
18.5  Molecular speeds  omit 
20.8  *microscopic interpretation of entropy  omit 
The labs themselves are available for free by download in PDF format.
