PHYS 155 - General Physics II

Credit Hours: 4
Lecture Hours: 3
Laboratory Hours: 3

Prerequisite(s): PHYS 150  or equivalent or permission of the instructor

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

This is the second course in a two-course, algebra-based physics sequence. Major topics include wave motion, electrostatics, circuit elements and their behavior, simple DC circuits, digital circuits, magnetism, electromagnetic induction, AC circuits, and optics and selected topics in modern physics. This course includes three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory per week, and meets General Education natural laboratory science requirements.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Students will demonstrate understanding of the methods scientists use to explore natural phenomena, including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation, evaluation of evidence, and employment of mathematical analysis.
  2. Students will demonstrate application of scientific data, concepts, and models in one of the natural sciences.
