- Description:
- Fundamental principles of physics, using algebra and trigonometry; the principles and applications of electricity and magnetism, including circuits, electrostatics, electromagnetism, waves, sound, light, optics, and modern physics topics; with emphasis on problem solving. Laboratory activities will reinforce fundamental principles of physics, using algebra and trigonometry; the principles and applications of electricity and magnetism, including circuits, electrostatics, electromagnetism, waves, sound, light, optics, and modern physics topics; with emphasis on problem solving. Laboratory portion is integrated with lecture portion.
- Measurable Learning Outcomes:
- Upon successful completion of this course, students will: Solve problems involving the inter-relationship of fundamental charged particles, and electrical forces, fields, and currents. Apply Kirchhoff’s Rules to analysis of circuits with potential sources, capacitance, inductance, and resistance, including parallel and series capacitance and resistance. Solve problems in the electrostatic interaction of point charges through the application of Coulombs Law. Solve problems involving the effects of magnetic fields on moving charges or currents, and the relationship of magnetic fields to the currents which produce them. Use Faradays and Lenz’s laws to determine electromotive forces and solve problems involving electromagnetic induction. Articulate the principles of reflection, refraction, diffraction, interference, and superposition of waves. Describe the characteristics of light and the electromagnetic spectrum. Develop techniques to set up and perform experiments, collect data from those experiments, and formulate conclusions from an experiment. Demonstrate the collections, analysis, and reporting of data using the scientific method. Record experimental work completely and accurately in laboratory notebooks, and communicate experimental results clearly in written reports. Solve problems applying the principles of reflection, refraction, diffraction, interference, and superposition of waves. Solve practical problems involving optics, lenses, mirrors, and optical instruments.
