Continuation of PHYS 3210. A calculus based physics course designed for students planning graduate studies in physics and related field. This class is intended to give students a more in depth understanding of electricity and magnetism. Topics include electrostatics, electric fields, and potentials; magnetic fields and Faraday's law; current flow, resistance, capacitance and inductance; electric circuits and electromagnetic oscillations; electromagnetic waves, geometric and physical optics. All topics are covered in one, two, and three spatial dimensions, in both Cartesian and curvilinear coordinate systems. Three lectures and two recitations weekly. Those wishing to take this course as a lecture-laboratory course should register concurrently for PHYS 2225.
