(4-2) Cr. 5. F.S.SS.

Prereq: PHYS 221 OR PHYS 241, MATH 166
3 hours of lecture each week plus 1 recitation and 1 laboratory each week. Fluid dynamics. Electric forces and fields. Electrical currents; DC circuits. Magnetic forces and fields: LR, LC, LCR circuits; Maxwell's equations; wave optics.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: PHYS 222 will be taught for the last time in Spring 2020; PHYS 232X and PHYS 232LX will be offered beginning Summer 2020.

PHYS 232X/LX separate the lecture and recitation component from the lab component of the course in order to provide additional flexibility for students. The combined content and curriculum of PHYS 232X and PHYS 232LX is the same as PHYS 222.  Students who would ordinarily take PHYS 222 as part of their degree program can take PHYS 232X and PHYS232LX in its place.
