I. Catalog Course Description
Prerequisites: PHYS151 or PHYS180
Provides individual study conducted under the direction of a faculty member. May be repeated for up to six credits.
II: Course Objectives
Engineering Physics II provides coverage in electricity and magnetism and thermodynamics. More specifically, this course covers properties of electric fields, potentials, steady-state and transient currents, as well as properties of dielectrics, magnetic fields, electromagnetic fields, and classical thermodynamics. In addition, the first and second Law of Thermodynamics, kinetic theory of gases and entropy will be covered as time permits.
- Develop conceptual and analytic skills solving a broad range of problems in electricity and magnetism and thermodynamics.
- Verify dimensional analysis, approximation methods as applied to problems in engineering physics.
- Solidify the conceptual basis of classical concepts by working a number of multifaceted problems with direct applications in the laboratory.
