Catalog description of proposed course (ACGM/WECM verbatim):
Principles of physics for science, computer science, and engineering majors, using calculus, involving the principles of electricity and magnetism, including circuits, electromagnetism, waves, sound, light, and optics.

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, students will:

  1. Articulate the fundamental concepts of electricity and electromagnetism, including electrostaticpotential energy, electrostatic potential, potential difference, magnetic field, induction, and Maxwell’s Laws.
  2. State the general nature of electrical forces and electrical charges and their relationship to electrical current.
  3. Solve problems involving the inter-relationship of electrical charges, electrical forces, and electrical fields.
  4. Apply Kirchhoff’s.Laws to analysis of circuits with potential sources, capacitance, and resistance,including parallel and series capacitance and resistance.
  5. Calculate the force on a charged particle between plates of a parallel-plate capacitor.
  6. Apply Ohm’s law to the solution of problems.
  7. Describe the effects of static charge on nearby materials in terms of Coulomb’s Law.
  8. Use Faraday’s and Lenz’s laws to find the electromotive forces.
  9. Describe the components of a wave and relate those components to mechanical vibrations, sound and decibel level.
  10. Articulate the principles ofreflection, refraction, diffraction, interference and superposition of waves.
  11. Solve real-world problems involving optics, lenses, and mirrors.
