This course builds on the material of Physics 201, and explores the application of Maxwell’s Equations to understand a range of topics including electric fields and matter, magnetic materials, light, and radiation. As we explore diverse phenomena, we will learn useful approximation techniques and beautiful mathematical tools. In addition to weekly tutorial meetings, the class will meet once a week as a whole to introduce new material.
The Class: Type: tutorial, one hour per week; lecture, one hour per week
Requirements/Evaluation: evaluation will be based on weekly problem sets, tutorial participation, presentations, and a final exam or final project, all of which have a substantial quantitative component
Extra Info: may not be taken on a pass/fail basis; not available for the fifth course option
Prerequisites: PHYS 202 and PHYS/MATH 210 or MATH 209 or MATH 309
