This is the second in the series of two noncalculus courses covering fundamental principles of physics and is targeted specifically toward nonscience majors. By drawing on examples from everyday life, such as tasers, defibrillators, household electrical power, and cameras, PHYS112 covers the physics of electricity and magnetism, waves, sound, light and optics, as well as buoyancy and flight. The emphasis will be on developing a conceptual understanding of the physical processes as well as problem-solving skills.
This course will provide students with mathematical tools and general concepts to quantitatively model everyday physical processes in the world around us.
