Physics 2 (PHYS 1200)

This course covers the second half of a standard 1st year calculus-based physics course (PHYS 1100 is the first half). Topics include electricity and magnetism, geometric optics, physical optics and quantum physics (including radioactivity). Students will perform a number of laboratory experiments connected to these topics. In addition, students will perform six introductory engineering laboratory experiments in order to familiarize themselves with operating lab instruments such as linear power supplies, digital multi-meters, function generators and oscilloscopes. Students will also learn proper bread boarding and printed wiring board assembly techniques.

Pre-requisites:
Physics 1 (PHYS 1100)

Co-requisites:
