The course will be curved with a median near a B/B- If the class does exceptionally well, then the median may go up. There will be 3 exams 2 nd -4 th Thursday Lowest score will be dropped 45% of your grade The Final Cumulative 40% of your grade Clicker questions None today Tomorrow there will be Worst 3 days dropped 15% of your grade Each lecture gets equal weight August 5, 2013 2 Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C.

Physics Concept Components Learning Outcome Electric Force and Fields Charge and its analogy to mass Coulomb’s Law and its analogy to gravity Electric Fields Electric Flux Gauss’s Law Electric Potential Capacitance Material Properties Evaluate the forces of charged objects on one another. Evaluate value and magnitude of electric fields at arbitrary points in space. Evaluate the potential differences between objects (surfaces and points). Discern between electric potential and electric potential energy Compute electric field and potential for point charges Compute electric field and potential from charge distributions August 5, 2013 4 Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C.
