PHYS 132 GE: Fundamental Physics II

This course is the second part of the algebra-based (non-calculus) course sequence for science majors. The focus is on abstract models used to describe and predict phenomenon in electricity, magnetism, waves, light and optics. Some material in atomic and nuclear physics is also examined. Competency in using optical and electrical equipment will be developed with an emphasis on the consistency between the abstract models and the properties of the equipment and physical phenomena that are examined.
