112 Syllabus

PHY-112 is the second part of a two-semester sequence in introductory physics offered to students who are not majoring in physics or engineering. This sequence is intended for students in pre-medicine, pre-architecture, pre-dentistry, pre-law, construction, psychology, life sciences, manufacturing technology, aerospace technology, physical therapy, pre-optometry, pre-veterinary medicine, etc. WE WILL ASSUME YOU HAVE A GOOD WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF ALGEBRA, GEOMETRY, AND TRIGONOMETRY.

PHY-112 covers the subject of Electricity and Magnetism, including electric and magnetic forces and fields, the relationship between electric field and electric potential, simple electric circuits, geometrical optics, and the wave nature of light. The textbook is Physics, 6th Edition, with EGradePlus, by John D. Cutnell and Kenneth W. Johnson (Wiley, 2004). EGradePlus is required. If you buy a used textbook, then you must buy EGradePlus separately at the bookstore. Also required is a PRS (Personal Response System) transmitter, also available at the bookstore.

The associated laboratory, PHY-114, is an essential part of the introductory physics experience. We STRONGLY recommend that you take the lab concurrently with the lecture, even if your curriculum is one of the few that does not require it.

The text of the syllabus is also available as a pdf file.
