PHYS112 gives an introduction in electromagnetism and optics with emphasis on the following topics: Electric fields and currents, magnetic fields and induction, Maxwell¿s equations geometric and physical optics, interference, and diffraction.
After completing this course the students will be able to:
- Explain basic physical laws and concepts in electricity, electromagnetism, and optics.
- Use fundamental laws and relations to solve problems in electricity, electromagnetism, and optics.
- Draw sketches illustrating the physics in the problems solved.
The grading scale used is A to F. Grade A is the highest passing grade in the grading scale, grade F is a fail.
