About the content
PHYS 102x serves as an introduction to electricity and magnetism, following the standard second semester college physics sequence. Part 2 begins with the nature of the magnetic field and how it is created by current distributions and magnetic materials. Next, Faraday’s law of induction is described, as well as some of its applications and interesting effects. Finally, inductors and AC circuits are covered, including RLC circuits, reactances of circuit elements, and resonance. PHYS 102.2x consists of 5 weekly learning sequences, each with ~1.5 hours of video lectures, conceptual lecture problems, and online homework questions. The course concludes with an online exam during the 6th week.
