Second in a three semester introductory physics sequence. Explores quantitative modeling of the physical world through a study of electricity and magnetism. More mathematical and abstract than a typical introductory electricity and magnetism course. Topics include electrostatics, behavior of matter in electric fields, circuits, magnetic fields, Faraday's law, AC circuits, and electromagnetic waves. Makes substantial use of vector calculus. At the level of Electricity and Magnetism by Purcell.

When Offered Fall, Spring.

Permission Note Enrollment may be limited.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: strong performance in PHYS 1116 or very strong performance in PHYS 1112, and vector calculus at the level of  MATH 1920, MATH 2220, or MATH 2240.
