PHY 152 - General Physics 2

4 credits
What is the nature of light? In this course, we will study how early experimental work by scientists such as Franklin, Ampere, Young and Faraday led to the classical electromagnetic theory of light. Topics include magnetism, electric charge and electric circuits, geometric and wave optics, heat and energy, electric and magnetic fields, and radiation. PHY 152 and PHY 202 cannot both be taken for credit. 3 cr. lec. + 1 cr. lab.
Term Offered: Fall semester
