Description

Begins with an introduction to electricity: elementary electric charge, Coulomb's law, concepts of electric field and electrostatic potential, work, energy and capacitance, and dielectrics. The second part of the class is devoted to circuit analysis: voltage, current, resistance, power, Ohm's law, DC series/parallel circuits, Kirchhoff's laws, circuits with capacitors and R-C transients. The third part of the class focuses on concepts of electromagnetism: magnetic field and magnetic flux, forces acting on a charge and current carrying conductor, and analysis of series magnetic circuits.

Prerequisite(s)

GE 124 (taken) and MATH 123 (taken).

Note

Students can have credit for only one of PHYS 115 or PHYS 155. Students with credit for EP 155 may not take PHYS 155 for credit. EP 155 was last offered in 2004. PHYS 155 is a required course for students in the College of Engineering. Engineering students who have previously taken PHYS 115 must take PHYS 155 and will not receive credit for PHYS 115 toward their B.E.
