PHY 1054C

General Physics II With Lab (4)

Prerequisite: PHY 1053C

Classification: Parallel

PHY 1054 is the second of a two-semester survey of non-calculus based physics for science and pre-professional majors. This course presents electricity, magnetism, light, and some modern physics. Topics covered include electric charge and electric field, electric potential and capacitance, electric current and resistance, magnetism, electromagnetic induction, geometrical optics, optical instruments, wave optics, relativity, atomic structure, quantum mechanics, atomic nuclei. The laboratory experiences are designed to enhance the lecture part of the course, as well as to cover various laboratory techniques.(3 hours lecture, 2 hours laboratory and 1-hour problem-solving session per week)
