Physics II (PHY 104) provides an overview of numerous physics concepts related to the description of light and of electromagnetic phenamena. This course introduces the concept of fields in physics, in particular with the electric and magnetic fields, and develops students’ understanding of electricstatics, magnetostatics, geometrical and wave description of light. In addition, students explore concepts such as Coulomb’s law, Lorentz force, Gauss' law, Ohm's law, Faraday's law, and others. Upon completion of the course, the students will understand how the classical field theory of electromagnetism with the set of Maxwell equations can describe in a unified way many physical phenomena, from the propagation of light to electrostatics, magnetostatics and electromagnetic induction.
