PHY 1402 – 11001 – General Physics II Fall 2009 PHY 1402 – 11001 – General Physics II Laboratory MEETINGS: Lecture 12:30 – 1:50 PM T Th 255 Winship Lab 2:00 – 3:20 PM T Th 255 Winship CREDIT: 4 Hours INSTRUCTOR: Lorinda Stinnett Office: Room # 210B Winship Building Phone: 281-618-1146 email: Lorinda.A.Stinnett@lonestar.edu (best way to contact me) office hrs: M,W 10:30 – 11:50PM, T, TH 3:20 – 4PM and by appointment TEXT: PREREQUISITES: PHYS 1401 – General Physics I MAT 1316 – Trigonometry MAT 1314 – College Algebra ENGL 0305 or ENGL 0316 and ENGL 0307 or ENGL 0326, or higher level course REQUIRED MATERIALS: 1. Scientific Calculator (non graphing, $20 or less, no cell phones) 2. Scantron Form B (you will need 6 of them) 3. Textbook 4. Pencil and eraser 5. Notebook 6. An inquisitive mind COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is a continuation of PHYS 1401, including the study of electrostatic forces, fields and potentials, DC and AC circuits, magnetism, electromagnetic waves, reflection, refraction, diffraction and interference of light and an introduction to modern physics. It includes an appropriate laboratory program illustrating the principles learned in lecture. This course is not for physical science and engineering majors but can serve as the Physics requirement for the pre-professional medical programs. ATTENDANCE/WITHDRAWAL: Attendance is required for this course and will be taken on a regular basis. Some points to remember: 1. A student may withdraw from class at any time from the start of the semester until November 6, 2009 with a grade of W. 2. Communication with the instructor about any special circumstances regarding class attendance is strongly encouraged. 3. If you have a legitimate reason for missing an exam, the final exam grade will count proportionately higher. No make-up exams will be given. 4. If you have a legitimate reason for missing a lab, then you must inform me as soon as possible. Since the lowest lab grade will be dropped, a missed lab will be an automatic drop. GRADING POLICY:
