Session: Spring 2020 (1/21-5/04)
Instructor: Aaron Wynveen (e-mail: wynveen @
Time: 0905 MTWF
Location: Tate Hall B50

This is the second course in the introductory physics sequence for life science majors. The class exposes the student to physical principles and concepts, demonstrates how these principles can be applied to quantitatively describe natural phenomena, and provides the student with an opportunity to perform hands-on experiments and measurements that model how physical knowledge is obtained. The fundamental principles of thermal physics, electricity and magnetism, optics, and nuclear physics are considered.

prereq: PHYS 1221 or equivalent
