2 General Physics II: Electricity & Magnetism I. Course Objective This course gives an introduction to the electromagnetism. The objective of this course is to develop a deeper understanding of electromagnetism fields and techniques used to solve engineering problems in electromagnetism. II. Course Description This course will cover: Coulomb's law, the electrostatic field, Gauss s Law, the electrostatic potential, capacitance and dielectrics, electric current, resistance and electromotive force, direct current circuits, magnetic field and magnetic forces, sources of magnetic fields, Ampere's Law, Faraday's Law, induction and Maxwell's equations.

ASD ADPoly 3 III. Course Objectives By the end of this course, students should be able to: 1.Describe the properties of electric charge, conductors and insulators, charge conservation and quantization. 2. Perform calculations on Coulomb’s law, electric fields, electric forces and Gauss’s law. 3. Demonstrate a well knowledge of the electric potential, equipotential surfaces, capacitors and types of capacitors. 4. Perform calculations on electric potential, capacitors and series/parallel capacitors in circuits. 5. Calculate current, potentials, resistances, and electromotive forces for simple circuits. 6.Describe the magnetic fields, forces, and potentials involved in the interaction of point charges and of currents. 7. Apply Faraday's Law, Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's rules and Lenz's Law to solve problems in electromagnetism.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
