Physics 194 is the second part of a two-semester calculus-based introduction to physics, with a co-requisite of Calculus III (Math 233 or its equivalent). The course is an advanced first-year course in electricity and magnetism, taught at a more sophisticated level than Physics 192. The approach is that of an upper-division physics course, with more emphasis on the underlying formal structure, rather than breadth of topics. The main goal is to provide an in-depth coverage of electromagnetism, DC and AC circuits using complex variables, and optics. The course is particularly addressed to students considering a physics or mathematics heavy science/engineering majors. L31 194 students should enroll in a L31 194L Physics II Laboratory section. Students enrolled in 194 must also enroll in 194A.
