PHYS 2208 - Fundamentals of Physics II


(PBS-AS)      
Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Forbidden Overlap: Students may receive credit for only one course in the following group: AEP 2170 , PHYS 1102 , PHYS 2208, PHYS 2213 , PHYS 2217 .
Prerequisite: PHYS 2207  or PHYS 1112  or PHYS 1101 ; substantial contact with introductory calculus (e.g., MATH 1110  or MATH 1106 ). A continuation of PHYS 2207 .

G. Case.

PHYS 2208 follows PHYS 2207  in the two-semester introduction to physics intended for students majoring in biological science, physical science, or mathematics. PHYS 2208 provides a rich exposure to the methods of physics and to the basic analytical and scientific skills required by all scientists. Lectures are highly interactive and illustrated with applications from the sciences, medicine, and everyday life. Labs highlight lecture topics via a hands-on environment. Recitation sections reinforce the lecture topics via cooperative problem-solving.   The course content includes electricity and magnetism, optics, and topics from quantum mechanics, nuclear physics and particle physics.
