PHYS& 223 Engineering Physics III (6 credits)

Distribution Area Fulfilled Natural Sciences with Lab; General Transfer Elective
Formerly PHYS 123 -CCN

Prerequisite PHYS& 221  and MATH& 152  with a grade of at least 2.0 in each.

Course Description
The third quarter of a three-quarter sequence in calculus-based physics for science and engineering students dealing with the topics of electric fields, Gauss’s Law, electric potential, capacitance, current, resistance, direct current circuits, magnetic fields, electromagnetic induction, and alternating current circuits. Lab included.

Student Outcomes
1. Qualitatively and quantitatively describe the natural world by applying the principles of physics related to electricity and magnetism.
2. Effectively communicate symbolic relationships by correctly relating each physical quantity of electricity and magnetism to the symbol that represents it and the unit specific to the quantity.
3. Demonstrate appropriate skills/strategies to solve physical problems related to electricity and magnetism.
4. Interpret experiments using measurement tools and data analysis to draw meaningful conclusions about physical systems.
5. Demonstrate effective collaboration skills to solve problems, conduct laboratory experiments, and produce reports.
