Basic principles of electromagnetism, the mechanics of oscillatory motion, and experiments in these topics for physical science and engineering majors. This class may include students from multiple sections. (Elective)
- Describe, explain, and use Einstein's special theory of relativity solve relativistic motion problems, especially as relates to conservation of momentum and energy.
- Describe, explain, and use concepts surrounding electric interactions for static charge distributions.
- Describe, explain, and use concepts of electric fields in deriving and using Gauss's law, work, energy, and capacitance in solving electrical problems.
- Describe, explain, and use concepts magnetism for permanent magnets and electromagnets, including changing electric and magnetic fields, and how this relates to special relativity.
- Describe, explain, and use Maxwell's equations to understand changing electric and magnetic fields, especially in the context of AC circuits.
- Design, carry out, and interpret experiments in the laboratory to answer electricity and magnetism questions during lab, as well on assessments.
