A. Serway and J. W. Jewett Jr., Brooks/Cole-Thomson Learning, ISBN 0495112453 or ISBN 9780495112457 Prerequisite course(s): HMTH 162 (Calculus II) and HPHY 154 (Mechanics) Course description: HPHY 253 is a four credit-hour course that provides a calculus-based introduction to the fundamental laws of electricity and magnetism. This branch of physics deals with the behavior of courses for HPHY 253 : 02 are the laboratory course HPHY 253 L and the recitation course HPHY 253 R. You (the student) are expected to attend classes regularly and punctually. If you miss a class for any reason, what assignments were given in your absence. Grading: Your course grade will be based on the teacher²s assessment of your overall performance.

Outline of the Course 1. Electric Fields: Distributions of Point Charges (a) Point charges: A particle is an object that can be treated as pointlike in a given context. For Therefore, relative to a room, we can treat a pocket calculator as a particle. However, the size of a pocket calculator is of the same order as the size of a typical sheet of paper. Therefore, relative to a sheet of paper, we cannot treat a pocket calculator as a particle. A point charge is simply a charged particle. (b) Coulomb±s law: This law tells us how to calculate the electric force exerted by one point charge on
