PHY 222 - Electricity and Light

A continuation of PHY 221 ; part of a two-course algebra-based sequence in college-level physics. Topics include electrostatics, fields, potentials, current, magnetism, DC and AC circuits, and geometrical and physical optics. Students will learn about electric and magnetic fields, and will be introduced to the basic components of electrical circuits. PHY 222 explores the physical concepts and principles that constrain Society’s use of electricity, magnetism and light. All physics majors, minors and pre-engineers must elect PHY 224.
