PHYSC 004C - Principles of Physics: Electricity and Magnetism - Units 4

Prerequisites: MATH 2 and PHYSC 4A, each with grade of "C" or better; MATH 3 with grade of "C" or better or concurrent enrollment in MATH 3.

This course is designed to cover topics in static electricity, Coulomb's Law, electric fields, and potential. Circuit theory is not emphasized; however, laboratory topics introduce use of measuring instruments for the various circuit parameters. The triode, transistor, and op-amp are examined. Magnetism includes the laws of Ampere, Faraday, and Maxwell. Alternating-current (AC) circuit elements and their response to variable-frequency signals are studied. (UC, CSU, CAN PHYS 12)
