PHY-232 - Classical Physics 2

3 credits

A calculus-based, rigorous physics course for engineering and science transfer majors, also called "Electricity and Magnetism". It is the second of a required two-semester sequence [PHY-231] for engineering transfer students. Topics include electrostatics, electric and magnetic fields, their interaction with charged particles, and laws of induction. Voltage, current and circuit analysis will be discussed. Includes a three-hour laboratory and a one-hour recitation each week. Honors component with permission of instructor.

Prerequisite(s): PHY-231 and MAT-132 (minimum grade of C-) and placement at college-level English.

Corequisite(s): PHY 232L  and MAT-233 

Mass Transfer Block: Credits earned in this course are counted towards the MassTransfer Block Natural or Physical Science requirements.
