Fall 2010 Prof. Yong Chen ( yongchen@purdue.edu ) Prof. Michael Manfra ( mmanfra@purdue.edu ) Lecture 1 Slide 2 PHYS 272: Matter and Interactions II -- Electric And Magnetic Interactions http://www.physics.purdue.edu/academic_programs/courses/phys272/ Course Content This course deals with electric and magnetic interactions , which are central to the structure of matter, to chemical and biological phenomena, and to the design and operation of most modern technology [foundational to all engineering ] The main goal of this course is to have you engage in a process central to science: the attempt to model a broad range of physical phenomena using a small set of powerful fundamental principles . The specific focus of the course is an introduction to field theory , in terms of the classical theory of electricity and magnetism (E&M). The course also emphasizes the atomic structure of matter, especially the role of electrons and protons in matter.
