PHYS 2214

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

For majors in engineering (including biological, biomedical, and biomolecular engineering), computer science, physics, earth and atmospheric science, and other physical and biological sciences who wish to understand the oscillation, wave, and quantum phenomena behind much of modern technology and scientific/medical instrumentation. Covers physics of oscillations and wave phenomena, including driven oscillations and resonance, mechanical waves, sound waves, electromagnetic waves, reflection and transmission of waves, standing waves, beats, Doppler effect, polarization, interference, diffraction, transport of momentum and energy, wave properties of particles, and introduction to quantum physics. With applications to phenomena and measurement technologies in engineering, the physical sciences, and biological sciences.  As with PHYS 1112 and PHYS 2213, this course is taught in a largely "flipped", highly interactive manner.  

When Offered Fall, spring, summer.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: PHYS 2213 (or strong performance in PHYS 2208); vector calculus at the level of MATH 1920 or, MATH 2220 or, MATH 2240 or MATH 2130.  Students would benefit from prior exposure to differential equations at the level of MATH 2930, or from registration in that course.  Primarily for students of engineering, physics, and related disciplines.
Forbidden Overlaps Forbidden Overlap: Students may not receive credit for both PHYS 2214 and PHYS 2218.
