3 credits

A calculus-based, rigorous physics elective for engineering and science transfer majors. It is the optional continuation of a required two-semester sequence [PHY 231 , PHY 232 ] for engineering transfer students. Topics include geometric and wave optics, quantum theory and special relativity. Fundamentals of nuclear and particle physics 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 with a grade of C-or better and placement at ENG-101.

Corequisite(s): PHY 233L , MAT 233, and PHY-232 (can be taken simultaneously with permission of instructor)
