Physics 232: General Physics II
Physics 232 is the second course in a three-semester, calculus-based, introductory-physics sequence. This sequence explores the nature of matter and its interactions: Mechanics (Phys. 231), Electricity and Magnetism (Phys. 232), and Wave Phenomena, Thermodynamics, and Quantum Mechanics (Phys. 233). Throughout this sequence, you will engage in the physics program – applying just a hand-full of fundamental principles to model the behavior of diverse systems. Those of you who’ve taken 231 will be familiar with the emphasis of understanding over technical tricks, though you should find this semester on E & M conceptually and technically ‘rich.’
