MTH 253 and PH 212. Recommended to be taken with
Studies periodic behavior and topics from modern physics. Builds on concepts from previous terms and considers the physics of periodic motion, mechanical waves, wave interference, standing waves, acoustic waves, electromagnetic waves, geometric optics, diffractions and topics from special relativity to quantum mechanics. At all stages, applications of calculus to the solving of problems will be explored. Lab includes basic optical experiences along with a long-term project to affirm student abilities to integrate investigative lab concepts from previous terms. Required for engineering students and most students planning programs in the physical sciences. Should be taken in sequence.
