PHYS 2213 - Physics II: Electromagnetism

(PBS-AS, PHS-AS)      

Fall, Spring, Summer. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Forbidden Overlap: due to an overlap in content, students will receive credit for only one course in the following group: AEP 2170 , PHYS 1102 , PHYS 2208 , PHYS 2213, PHYS 2217 .
Prerequisite: PHYS 1112  (or strong performance in PHYS 2207 ) and one of MATH 1920 , MATH 2220 , or MATH 2240 . Primarily for: students of engineering, physics and related disciplines. PHYS 2217  presents a more advanced view of the subject. Students must take PHYS 1110  with PHYS 1112 , PHYS 1116 , PHYS 2213, or PHYS 2217  to complete the required sequence.

Fall: R. Tapping; Spring: Staff; Summer, Staff.

Second course in a three semester introductory physics sequence. The course emphasizes active learning during class. Video lectures are viewed before class; most class time is devoted to problem-solving.  Topics include: electric forces and fields, electric energy and potential, circuits, magnetic forces and fields, magnetic induction, and Maxwell’s equations. Taught at a level somewhat higher than University Physics, Vol. 2, by Young and Freedman. The math prerequisite is essential: line, surface, and volume integrals are done routinely and occasional use is made of gradient, divergence, and curl.
