Physics 214 Summer 1993 Lecturer: Alan Giambattista 111 Clark Hall 255-6021 TA: Ivan Dobrianov 81 Rockefeller Hall 255-6036 Course Materials P. A. Tipler, Physics, 3rd edition, volumes 1 and 2. Chapters 13-14, 29-33, 35-36. Physics 214 Laboratory Manual. Ideas for productive reading 1. Summer courses move very quickly; don't get behind! It's best to read ahead of the lectures--you'll get more out of the time spent in class. 2. Rederive equations for yourself, filling in the omitted steps; check for dimensional consistency (look at units); ask whether it makes sense ("Should E decrease as t increases?"); check special cases (e.g. a variable going to zero or infinity); sketch a graph and look for the symmetries you expect it to display. 3. The Examples in the text are most useful if you stop to work them out on your own before you read the solution. The Exercises and Questions are well worth doing; you might want to discuss them (argue?) with a classmate. Doing a few Level I problems is a good way to check your understanding. (Odd-numbered problems have answers in the back.)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
