(5,5,5): General Physics with Calculus (for physical science
First part of a six-term sequence in physics, which includes CHEM 440 and PHYS 321, 322, for students in the physical sciences and engineering. Emphasis in classical mechanics, special relativity, electricity and magnetism, and waves.
Prerequisite: Calculus previously or concurrently.
(3): Physics of Music (Taught periodically)
A course designed to introduce music majors and other interested students to some concepts of physics as applied particularly to music. A knowledge of music theory helps but is not essential.
Prerequisite:: college algebra or equivalent.
321 (5): Waves and Quantum Theory (Winter)
Classical waves. Quantum physics of atoms, molecules, solids, nuclei, and particles.
Prerequisite: PHYS 223 and MATH 254.
Phys 321 May be taken under the CHEM prefixes CHEM 441(4) and CHEM 444 (1)
(5,5): Experimental Techniques
For students in science and engineering. Topics include an introduction to electronic circuits and techniques, vacuum technology, optical techniques, and machine shop practices of special relevance to present-day experimental instrumentation. The final term deals almost exclusively with microcomputer interfacing and application.
Prerequisite: PHYS 223.
