Unformatted text preview: General Physics : Oscillations, Waves, Sound and Light Textbook: - Serway and Jewett “Physics for Scientists and Engineers”, 7 th edition aterial Covered Instructor: Ilya Krivorotov (e-mail [email protected] , phone: 824-6967) Office hours: - Monday from 9:00 am to 10:00 am - Tuesday from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm in Rowland Hall, Room 310E Notes Material Covered :- Fluid Mechanics (chapter 14)- Oscillations and Waves, Sound (chapters 15 – 18)- Light and Optics (chapters 35 – 38) Course website is www.eee.uci.edu Read the detailed syllabus posted there! General Physics : Oscillations, Waves, Sound and Light Grading:- homework (on-line through WebAssign ): 10%- 2 midterms (closed book, 1 page of handwritten notes, 50 minutes): 40%- final (closed book, 2 pages of handwritten notes, 1 hour 50 minutes): 50%- free response questions at the midterm and final exams Notes- the final course grade will be curved to fit the following distribution: A/A-: 17%, B+/B/B-: 33%, C+/C/C-: 33%, D+/D/D-/F: 17% General Physics : Oscillations, Waves, Sound and Light Homework:- Homework is online at WebAssign ( http://www.webassign.net )- You will need to pay to access WebAssign, there are two options:- You can purchase access to WebAssign directly from the WebAssign website . - You will need to purchase the Brooks Cole Enhanced version of WebAssign- Make sure you buy the correct version or you will not be able to access your online homework. he WebAssign homework is due on Tuesdays at 11:59 pm Notes- The WebAssign homework is due on Tuesdays at 11:59 pm- Make sure you get access to WebAssign well ahead of the deadline. There is a free trial access to Web Assign for ~ two weeks.- For all technical questions refer to WebAssign online Guide General Physics : Oscillations, Waves, Sound and Light Discussion sections:- attend- First 15 minutes – solving a practice problem in groups of three students- First 15 minutes – problem discussion, TA feedback- Last 20 minutes – either solving another practice problem in groups How to succeed in this course:- Solving homework problems is the best way to learn and to prepare for Notes exams. Your grade is determined by how well you can solve problems !- Read the relevant sections of the textbook before coming to lectures and discussion sections- Ask questions , attend my office hours and your TA office hours. Utilize the physics tutoring center (RH 142, Mo-Th 5:30pm – 9:30pm). Fluid Mechanics States of Matter: • Solid- Has a definite volume and shape • Liquid- Has a definite volume but not a definite shape • Gas- Has neither a definite volume nor shape, occupies vessel object Notes the volume of the vessel it is confined to. • Gases and liquids flow and are called fluids • A branch of physics that deals with macroscopic properties of liquids and gases is called Fluid Mechanics States of Matter • All of the previous definitions are somewhat artificial: – Window glass slowly flows although it appears to be a solid...
