## 131 Syllabus

## Second Summer Session 2011

###
PHY-131 is the second part of a three-semester sequence in introductory
physics offered to engineering and other science and pre-professional
majors who have the appropriate background in mathematics. The
prerequisite for PHY-131 is the second semester of calculus, or, in
terms of its ASU course number, MAT-271. Since a working familiarity
with basic integral calculus will be assumed, the student who has not
had this course or its equivalent should withdraw from the class.
Differential and integral calculus will be used regularly
throughout the course.

PHY-131 covers the subject of electricity and magnetism from the
electrostatics of Coulomb's law through electrodynamics, as contained
in Ampere's and Faraday's laws. Some DC and AC circuit analysis is done,
but only to illustrate the physical properties of simple circuit elements
and the concept of resonance in physical systems. The course concludes
with a discussion of Maxwell's equations and a brief introduction to
electromagnetic waves. A detailed list of topics can be found on the
Homework and Lecture Schedule which accompanies
this syllabus.

The textbook is University Physics, by Young and
Freedman, Twelfth Edition, (Pearson Addison Wesley, 2008.) Reading assignments
and homework problems are keyed to this textbook. You may use either
the expanded edition or Volume 2 only. Also
required is a Turning Point
transmitter (available at the bookstore) or Turning Point ResponseWare software.

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