Learning Outcomes

  1. Calculate electric and magnetic fields, forces, and potentials from a given set of charges or currents.
  2. Use the basic properties of electromagnetic waves and how they relate to optics to solve related, simple problems.
  3. Solve electric circuit problems for both AC and DC circuits containing batteries, inductors, capacitors, and resistors.
  4. Use the basic ideas of geometrical and physical optics, such refraction and diffraction to solve simple optical problems.
  5. Solve simple problems in special relativity involving energy, momentum, length contraction, time dilation, and velocity composition.
  6. Apply elementary ideas from quantum mechanics to simple systems such as the hydrogen atom.
