Phys 1102W.100

Introductory College Physics II

Session: Spring 2015 (1/20-5/08)
Instructor: John Capriotti (e-mail: capriotti @ physics.umn.edu)
Time: 1325 MWF
Location: Phys 166

This is the second term of a course sequence designed to prepare you for work in your field by: having solid conceptual understanding of the way the real world works based on a few fundamental principles of physics; being able to solve realistic problems using logical reasoning and quantitative problem solving skills; applying those physics concepts and problem solving skills to new situations; and learning to effectively communicate technical information. To achieve these goals, this course requires an in depth understanding of the material. This course will emphasize the application of the principles and skills learned in Physics 1101W to more complex, abstract, and realistic situations involving topics from fluids, thermal physics, waves, electricity, magnetism, optics, and atomic physics. A laboratory requires you to apply both the concepts and problem solving skills taught in this course to the real world. It will also emphasize technical communications skills. A discussion section gives you the opportunity to discuss your conceptual understanding and your problem solving skills by practicing working problems with other students. The laboratory and discussions sections emphasize collaborative problem solving as a powerful learning tool and as a preparation for work in your profession.
