- Description:
- Principles of physics for science, computer science, and engineering majors,
using calculus, involving the principles of electricity and magnetism,
including circuits, electromagnetism, waves, sound, light, and optics.
- Measurable Learning Outcomes:
- Upon successful completion of this course, students will:
- Articulate the fundamental concepts of electricity and electromagnetism, including electrostatic potential energy, electrostatic potential, potential difference, magnetic field, induction, and Maxwell’s Laws.
- State the general nature of electrical forces and electrical charges, and their relationship to electrical current.
- Solve problems involving the inter-relationship of electrical charges, electrical forces, and electrical fields.
- Apply Kirchhoff’s Laws to analysis of circuits with potential sources, capacitance, and resistance, including parallel and series capacitance and resistance.
- Calculate the force on a charged particle between the plates of a parallel-plate capacitor.
- Apply Ohm’s law to the solution of problems.
- 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 electromotive forces.
- Describe the components of a wave and relate those components to mechanical vibrations, sound, and decibel level.
- Articulate the principles of reflection, refraction, diffraction, interference and superposition of waves.
- Solve real-world problems involving optics, lenses, and mirrors.
