PHYS 2208

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

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.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: PHYS 2207 or PHYS 1112 or PHYS 1101; substantial contact with introductory calculus (e.g., MATH 1110 or MATH 1106).
Forbidden Overlaps Forbidden Overlap: due to an overlap in content, students will receive credit for only one course in the following group: AEP 2170, PHYS 1102, PHYS 2208, PHYS 2213, PHYS 2217.
