General Physics: Electricity and Magnetism (4) Calculus-based study of the basic concepts of electricity and magnetism.
PHYS 212H General Physics: Electricity and Magnetism (4)
Calculus-based introduction to classical electricity and magnetism, including such topics as, electric charge and electric fields, Gauss's law, electric potential, capacitance, current, resistance, and circuits, magnetic fields, and fields due to currents, induction and inductance, magnetism of matter, Maxwell's equations, and electromagnetic oscillations.
In contrast to the non-honors version, PHYS 212H typically makes more frequent use of higher level mathematical concepts and involves the solution of more sophisticated problems. A number of topics are considered in more depth, and these often focus on connections of the material to real-life science or engineering applications.
