Primary Instructor:

PHYSICS 260 is a continuation of PHYSICS 160 and introduces the theory of electromagnetic phenomena. This course will introduce you to:

  1. The deeper physical meaning of the concepts
  2. A rigorous mathematical approach, using vector calculus when applicable
  3. Problem solving including computer use
  4. Contemporary applications

If you like physics and math, appreciate the deeper meaning and derivation of concepts and equations, and if you like to do problems, you are in the right course.
