University Physics - PH 222, Honors section

This course provides students with the necessary mathematical and conceptual tools to understand fundamental principles in Physics. The objective for this calculus-based class is to learn concepts in electricity and magnetism: Coulomb's Law, Electric Fields, Gauss' Law, Capacitors and Dielectrics, Ohm's Law, Alternating vs. Direct Current Circuits, Magnetic Fields, Ampere's Law, Biot-Savart Law, Faraday's Law and optics. The importance of understanding physics to develop modern technology is emphasized. In this Honors class, topics are covered with more mathematical rigor and in greater depth than the regular sections.
