PHYS& 222 Engineering Physics II with Lab

5 credits
This calculus-based physics course forms the second part of a three-quarter introductory physics sequence, suitable for physics and engineering majors. This course covers the basic principles of electromagnetism and includes Coulomb’s law, electric and potential fields, Gauss’s law, capacitance, current, resistance, DC circuit theory, magnetism, magnetic field, Biot-Savart and Ampere’s law, and Faraday’s law. Laboratory work is included.

Prerequisites: MATH& 151  and PHYS& 221  

Course Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Interpret laws and principles of electromagnetism to study electrostatics and magnetism
  • Solve problems involving electric charge, electric field, electric potential, magnetism, magnetic induction, and AC circuits
  • Apply Coulomb’s law and Gauss’s law to solve electrostatics problems
  • Demonstrate and draw visual representations of electric fields, electric potentials, and magnetic fields
  • Recognize, analyze, and solve problems involving DC electric circuits, resistance, currents voltage, capacitance, dielectrics, and energy storage
  • Apply magnetic fields and Biot-Savart’s and Ampere’s law to solve problems and real-world applications in electromagnetism
  • Implement Lenz’s and Faraday’s Laws to solve problems involving electromagnetic induction
  • Recognize and solve problems involving inductance, RC and RLC circuits, and oscillations
  • Demonstrate techniques to set up and perform experiments, collect data from those experiments, record experimental work completely and accurately in the laboratory notebooks, formulate conclusions from an experiment and communicate experimental results clearly in written reports
  • Use quantitative methods to analyze experiments and other hands-on activities
