Description
This is part three of a calculusbased 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. Corequisite: 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.
