COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
PH252 ADVANCED PHYSICS II 2023 1 Physics and Nuclear Engineering 4.0 (BS=4.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This calculus-based advanced core physics course consists of a comprehensive study of electricity and magnetism. Topics include electrostatics, Gauss's Law, magnetic fields, Ampere's Law, Faraday's Law, circuits (direct current and alternating current), electromagnetic waves, geometric optics, physical optics, and elements of modern physics. An integrated laboratory program illustrates basic scientific techniques and serves to stimulate intellectual curiosity through discovery laboratories. The core physics program is designed to demonstrate the relevance of physics to military technology and to help prepare future Army leaders to anticipate and adapt to technological change.
