This course will continue where Physics 191 left off. We will study electricity and magnetism. Like classical mechanics that was covered in Physics 191, electricity and magnetism are fundamental to the study, though the phenomena they describe tend to be less intuitive than mechanics. Just as in 191, this course will force you to apply the mathematics you have learned as well as the physical concepts you learn in order to solve problems.

Assigned homework problems for each chapter are included below. The problems from each chapter will be due the class day after we have finished covering the material from that chapter in class. A subset of these problems will be graded. You should consider the assigned problems a minimal set of problems to look at. If you are having difficulty with the material, then you should do more problems.

The tests will have two parts: an individual portion and a group portion. The individual portion of the tests will consist of short answer and problems. The group portion of the tests will consist of a more difficult problem that you will solve as a group and hand in one solution. Before each group test, there will be at least one practice group test so that the groups have a chance to learn to work together. The group test will take place on the class period before the regular test. The final test will be solely an individual effort.

All of the tests will be closed book and closed notes. You will be given a sheet with all of the equations and constants that you need for the test, though you will have to remember how to apply them.

The grades in this class will be based on 7 grades: 3 tests, the final exam, lab, homework, and participation. Homework and each of the 3 tests will be worth 12.5% of the overall grade, while the final exam will be worth 25%, lab will be worth 15% and quiz/participation will be worth 10%. The participation grade will be based on participation in the practice group tests, quizzes, other exercises in class.
