PHYS 201(F) Electricity and Magnetism (Q)

In this course, we study electromagnetic phenomena and their mathematical description. Topics include electromagnetic induction, alternating circuits, and the electromagnetic properties of matter. We also introduce Maxwell's equations, which express in remarkably succinct form the essence of the theory. Format: lecture, three hours per week; laboratory, three hours per week. Evaluation will be based on weekly problem sets, labs, two hour tests, and a final exam, all of which have a substantial quantitative component. Prerequisites: Physics 142, Mathematics 105 or 106. No enrollment limit (expected:25).
