The basic principles of vectors, Newton's Laws of Motion, work, and the conservation principles of energy, linear, and angular momentum have been introduced in Physics 2A. In Physics 2B, these principles are applied to topics in electrodynamics, optics, and modern physics. Course Content I. Electric Charge, Force, and Field A. Relation between electric charge, force and field lines B. Forces between static charges, Coulomb’s Law C. The Electric Field as a Vector II. Electric Potential Energy A. Definition of Voltage Difference B. Relation Between Electric Voltage and Electric Field C. Electric Potential Due to Point Charges D. Equipotential Lines III. Electric Current and DC Circuits A. Definition of Electric Current B. Microscopic View of Electric Current and Resistance C. Relation Between Voltage, Current, and Resistance, Ohm’s Law D. Combinations of Resistors and Capacitors 1
