PHYS 2320 - Classical and Modern Physics I, II

The second semester of a two-semester introduction to classical and modern physics for science majors. A calculus-based treatment of the principles of electricity and magnetism, physical optics, elementary quantum theory, and atomic and nuclear physics. This sequence can be used by prospective physics majors and by other students planning to take physics courses numbered 3000 and higher; however, the four-semester sequence PHYS 1610, 1620, 2610, 2620 is recommended. PHYS 2310, 2320 in conjunction with the laboratory, PHYS 2030, 2040 satisfies the requirements for the B.S. in Chemistry, and can be used in place of PHYS 2010, 2020, 2030, 2040 to satisfy the requirements of medical and dental schools. PHYS 2310 is prerequisite for 2320. Three lecture hours and one problem session per week. Prerequisite: MATH 1320, PHYS 2310 or instructor permission.
