PHYS-152 Electromagnetic Phenomena
Spring for 2016-2017
This is the second semester of a calculus-based introduction to physics, particularly suited to the needs of majors in physics and other sciences. This course will deal mainly with electric and magnetic interactions. The focus of the course will be on electric and magnetic fields and their effect on matter, building to the development of Maxwell’s equations and a description of electromagnetic radiation. Connections between macroscopic and microscopic viewpoints will be emphasized. Facility with calculus is assumed. Three lecture hours, one tutorial hour, and two laboratory hours.
Prerequisites: MATH-035 (pre-requisite), MATH-036 (co-requisite)
