Additional topics covered include sound waves and an introduction to Modern Physics. Physics 2424 is a calculus-based course intended for Physical Science, Engineering and Mathematics majors. The course is intended to provide the student with a strong foundation for future course work in these fields as well as improving the student’s general problem solving skills. The course requires extensive use of Calculus including integration, trigonometry, and vectors as well as other math skills. Grading: The final grade for Physics 2424 is determined by the student's score upon written examinations, homework, quizzes, computer projects, and lab work. At least two and as many as three exams will be given during the semester as well as a comprehensive final. Homework will be assigned and collected using the "WEBASSIGN" homework system.
