Physics 2112 - Physics for Engineers and Scientists II

The goal of this course is for students to develop a basic understanding of the physical concepts involved in electrical and magnetic fields, basic electrical circuits, along with geometrical and physical optics. A significant emphasis will be placed on the basic concepts involved. Calculations and calculus will be used as a tool to study and learn these concepts.
