PHYS 2208

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2016-2017.

PHYS 2208 follows PHYS 2207 in the two-semester introduction to physics intended for students majoring in biological science, physical science, or mathematics. PHYS 2208 provides a rich exposure to the methods of physics and to the basic analytical and scientific skills required by all scientists. Lectures are highly interactive and illustrated with applications from the sciences, medicine, and everyday life. Labs highlight lecture topics via a hands-on environment. Recitation sections reinforce the lecture topics via cooperative problem-solving.   The course content includes electricity and magnetism, optics, and topics from quantum mechanics, nuclear physics and particle physics. 

When Offered Spring.
