Introductory Physics II
PHYS 112
Spring 2013
Section: 01   02   03   04   05   06   07  

This is the second in the series of two noncalculus courses covering fundamental principles of physics and is targeted specifically toward nonscience majors. Note that PHYS111 and PHYS112 may be taken in any order. 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. The associated lab PHYS122 is recommended.
