Course description

This class in an introduction to the classical theory of electricity and magnetism leading

to Maxwell’s equations, as well as applications to simple electrical circuits. We will

study the electromagnetic

force, time
-
varying electric and magnetic fields, and

electromagnetic waves. We will also learn about DC and AC circuits.


Office hours:

to be announced

Textbook:
Physics for scientists and Engineers second edition by Randall D. Knight

You will also need
the Lab Manual and a lab notebook.

We will be covering Chapt
ers 26 to 41

of this book.

Prerequisites:

Physics 2211
.


Course requirements


1.

Assignments:
Nine problem sets will be assigned throughout the semester.

The due date will be announced in each assign
ment copy.

They are due at
the beginning of class.

There is no credit for late homework.
All
problems will be graded o
n each homework for a
total of
50 points
. One of

the problem
s

sets (lowest score) will be dropped when calculating the
final

grade. Please

show all your work in your solutions and write legibly and

neatly.

It is difficult to award points when the solution is illegible. Finally,

do not leave your homework
until the last minute. That’s a guaranteed way

of doing poorly in this class.

2.

Quizzes
:

Five

quiz
zes will be given throughout the semester. I

will give the class at least
two days prior notice of a quiz.
Each Quiz will be graded for a total of
5
0 points

Makeup
quizzes will not be given.

3.

Exams:
2 exams, one midterm, and a final will be given.

Each exam will be graded for a
total of
10
0 points
.

All exams date

will be announced

4.

Laboratory

The laboratory will consist of approximately


ten”

experiments performed
during the semester. Laboratory reports will be collecte
d at the end of each lab sessi
on
.
Late reports will not be accepted.

All labs will be graded for a total of
100 points

and the
lab grade will count as 1/3 of the final grade
.

Laboratory:
You will be performing

seven or nine


lab experiments. You will be

graded on all
“nine”
.
Note th
at you must complete at least 8

labs and turn

in the reports in order
to pass this course. This is regardless of how well

you’
re doing in the other parts of the course
(homework and exams).

Pre

Lab Exercises:

due
BEFORE

the lab.
Make
-
up Labs:

You must present me with a
verifiable excuse
in writing
. Students with a valid excuse will be permitted to make up
one

lab
during the make
-
up week before the final.

Physics II l
aboratory content

1.


Electrostatics and Equipotential Field Mapping

2.


DC Circuits and Ohm's Law

3.

DC Circuits and Kirchhoff's Rules

4.

Resistors in series and in parallel

5.

Oscilloscope (phase between intensity and current)

6.

I
-
V

curves of non linear devices

7.

Magnetic Fields and induction

8.

Electric Resonance

9.

Convergent lens


I have to have a tough make
-
up exam policy. You must

have a
DOCUMENTED
valid excuse to
miss an exam. Serious sickness,

death in the family, or a university func
tion, if documented

properly,

constitute valid reasons. If you know ahead of time that you will miss an

ex
am (for
example for the above excuses
), you need to make arrangements ahead

of time for a make
-
up
exam.

. If I give a make
-
up test after the exam has
passed, note that this will be a more
difficult exam than the one given to the rest of the class




Grading:
The final grade will be calculated as follows:

Lab:
100 pts

Homework
:
50

pts

Quizzes
: 50 pts

Exams
: 100 pts

Midterm
:

100 pts

Final

exam
:
100

pts


A
verage (Quizzes +Homework)= 100pts

Average Exam = 100 pts

Lecture grade = Average [Ave (Exam) + Ave (quizzes +Homework)] =100pts


Course grade

= (Lecture grade)*2/3 + (Lab grade)*1/3 = 100 pts

Class Rules and Commonsense Expectations:


Attendance is important. N
ote that material that is not in the book
will be covered
in the clas
s.
If

you miss a class, it is your responsibility to get the class notes from

another student.

• When you come to class,
you
may not
read a newspaper, do homework for another class, or
chat with your neighbor. This is distracting to everybody. Please do no
t come if you’re not
going to participate in the class. Also, please be on time.

• Turn off cell phones and pagers at the beginning of each class.

• Cheating is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. You will without

an exception be reported to the Dean

of Students and get a zero on

your exam.

• You may work in groups on your problem sets as long as everyone is

actively working on the
problems. If you copy your homework from

someone else, you will
without a doubt
do poorly on
your exams.

• Your assign
men
ts will be graded by myself
and returned to you

within a week. Your exams

will be graded by
myself.
If you have any questions about grading or think that there is a
mistake, please come to me
.
