Engr Physics III w/Lab


Credits: 5
Clock Hours per Quarter: 60

AA Discipline: [Natural Sciences]

Lecture Hours:40    Lab Hours:20


Description
This is part three of a calculus-based physics sequence intended for physical science and engineering majors. Topics include electricity and magnetism, with selected topics from optics and modern physics as time allows. Lab work required. Prerequisite: PHYS& 222. Co-requisite: MATH& 153. Formerly PHYS 203, Physics for Science and Engineering III.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the fundamental concepts of electricity and electromagnetism, including electrostatic potential energy, electrostatic potential, potential difference, magnetic field, induction, and Maxwell’s Laws.
  • Apply circuit theory, including Ohm’s Law and Kirchhoff ‘s Laws to analysis of circuits with potential sources, capacitance, and resistance, including parallel and series capacitance and resistance.
  • Describe the effects of static charge on nearby materials in terms of Coulomb’s Law.
  • Use Faraday’s and Lenz’s laws to find the electromagnetic forces.
  • Analyze a written problem or observed phenomena, simplify it, identify the key known and unknown features, make predictions, and evaluate those predictions based on the principles of physics.
  • Solve numerical problems related to a broad range of topics from electricity and magnetism using the mathematics of algebra, trigonometry, and calculus.
  • Investigate topics from electricity and magnetism by designing, performing, and reporting on laboratory experiments.

  • Course Topics
  • Electric charge and electric field
