PHYS& 222 - Engineering Physics II (Electromagnetism)

5 Credits
PHYS&222 is the second of three laboratory classes in the calculus-based physics sequence. Topics include electric fields, circuits, and statics; magnetic interactions and fields; and relevant laws of electromagnetism (Coulomb, Gauss, Ampere, Lenz, Faraday).

General education distribution area: Natural Science, with lab.

Prerequisite(s): PHYS&221 with a 2.0 and MATH&151 with a 2.0. MATH&152 can be taken concurrently.

Course Outcomes

  1. Identify and explain major laws of electromagnetism.
  2. Solve physics problems about charge, fields, induction, circuits, magnetic interactions, and electrostatics.
  3. Use calculus and relevant mathematical methods to investigate practical engineering scenarios.
  4. Apply the scientific method in physics laboratory experiments, from hypothesis through testing, data analysis, and conclusion.
