Continuation of the detailed investigation of classical physics begun in PHYS 121. The topics covered in depth in this course are electricity and magnetism, and waves. In the first topic, electrostatics and magnetism will be discussed from the point of view of forces and fields while steady state and time dependent currents will be presented using conservation of charge and energy. The second topic will consist of an in depth study of waves on wires, sound waves and light waves based upon the properties of waves. The concepts described in this course will be discussed using the principles of differential and integral calculus. Problems and exams will require calculus for their solutions. (3,3,0)
