PHYS102x serves as an introduction to electricity and magnetism, following the standard second semester college physics sequence. It begins with electric charge in matter, the forces between charges, the electric field, Gauss's Law, and the electric potential. Electric current and resistance are introduced, and then the course moves to the magnetic field, Ampere's Law, and induction. PHYS 102x consists of ~1.5 hours of weekly video lectures, weekly online homework questions, and two online exams. The course runs 10 weeks, but during the two exam weeks there will be no new topics or homework assignments.
