General Physics II|
PHYS116, following PHYS113, focuses on the physics of charged particles that give rise to both electricity and magnetism. This course develops our understanding of the forces charged particles exert on each other and develops the concepts of electric and magnetic fields. Calculus is used extensively. The associated lab, PHYS124, is recommended.
This course presents quantitative mathematical and physical models of our world.
