- Name: Physics for Science and Engineers Lab II
- Division: Liberal Arts
- Discipline: Physics
- Units (Credits): 1.00
I. Catalog Course Description
Prerequisites: MATH182 & PHYS180 ; Corequisites: PHYS181
Explores electric fields, potential, current, dielectrics, circuits, magnetic fields, electromagnetic oscillations, thermodynamics and kinetic theory of gases. Students must co-enroll in both lecture and lab to receive credit.
II. Course Objectives and Linkage to General Education Program
The purpose of this course is to reinforce concepts and practices in PHYS 181 while also acquiring skills in experimental design, data collection and analysis, and scientific writing.
Upon successful completion of PHYS 181L (defined as a letter grade of C or better, 73% or higher overall score) learners will be able to:
- Produce valid hypotheses regarding topics in classical thermodynamics and classical electromagnetism. (ISLO #1, #4, #6)
- Design and implement experiments which can confirm or deny hypotheses. (ISLO #1, #6)
- Produce written reports about experiments and their outcomes. (ISLO #2, #3, #6)
Experiments and simulations in this course will address topics including, but not limited to, heat and temperature, thermal expansion, calorimetry, heat engines, the Coulomb force, electric fields, magnetism, electromagnetic induction, capacitance, and DC and AC electric circuits.
