Course Overview

Physics is one of the three main fields of science, along with biology and chemistry. If
asked what biology and chemistry deal with, most of us can come up with a one-word
answer: life and chemicals respectively. Physics though, often seems like a grab bag of
topics, including motion, magnets, machines, light, sound, and electrical circuits.
The common thread running through all these things is that they each illustrate some
basic mathematical laws in our physical world. In brief, physics is the scientific study of
matter, energy, and their most fundamental physical interactions, including attractions,
repulsions, and collisions.

In Physics B, you will use your physical understanding of motion, forces and energy and
apply that knowledge to some important, specialized topics in physics: the behavior of
waves, applications of wave theory to light and optics, the interaction of electrical and
magnetic forces, and the special “non-Newtonian” properties of energy and matter
described by quantum theory.

Course Goals

By the end of this course, you will be able to do the following:
Learn about the behavior and special properties of waves, such as the ability to
bend and to reflect the direction of waves as they travel.
Investigate electromagnetic radiation, including x-rays, visible light, and radio waves.
Explore electric charges and their interactions with each other.
Learn about simple electric circuits and be able to determine important values
related to that circuit, including current, resistances, power, and energy.
Find out about the relationship between electricity and magnetism, and explore
some of the special mathematical relationships and applications in which magnetic
forces and electrical forces and charges interact.
Explore the “non-Newtonian” world of quantum physics, including the quantum
interpretation of light and a modern understanding of matter, especially regarding
nuclear forces and interactions.
