PHYS 1501 Foundations of Physics II (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

Second semester of the two-semester algebra-based introductory physics course sequence primarily for non-science majors. This course is similar to PHYS2101 in pace and content but with less emphasis on mathematical technique. Topics to be covered are fundamentals of electrostatics, simple electrical circuits, magnetism, electromagnetism, electromagnetic oscillations and waves, physical optics, and, if time allows, basic concepts and applications of special relativity and quantum physics.
