Physics II 4 s.h.
Continuation of PHYS:1701; introduction to fluid mechanics, electricity, magnetism (Maxwell's equations). Offered spring semesters.
This calculus-based course is part of a four-semester sequence intended primarily for physics and astronomy majors and other physical science or engineering majors who seek an in-depth introduction to physics (PHYS:1701, PHYS:1702, PHYS:2703, and PHYS:2704). This continuation of Physics I covers topics in electricity and magnetism, including Maxwell’s equations. Grades are determined by homework, midterm exams, a final exam, discussion sessions, and performance in lab sessions. The three weekly lectures and one-hour discussion (problem solving) are given by the course instructor, and the weekly lab is conducted by a teaching assistant. Taught only in spring semester.
