An inquisitive mind COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is a continuation of PHYS 2425, including the study of electrostatics, Gauss’s law, circuit theory, magnetism and Faraday’s law, electromagnetic waves and Maxwell’s equations, geometric and physical optics, and introduction to modern physics. It includes an appropriate laboratory program illustrating the principles learned in lecture. This course is primarily for physical science and engineering majors. 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 April 13, 2010 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.
