This is a calculus based general physics course for students in science and engineering, This course has many relevant concepts with General Physics I, such as position, velocity, acceleration, force, Newton’s laws of motion, work, and energy. General Physics II will cover topics including electricity and magnetism, light, resistive and capacitive circuits; electromagnetic induction; electromagnetic waves; geometrical optics; interference, diffraction, and polarization of light. The course also uses high school algebra, geometry and trigonometry, vector and vector arithmetic, and some calculus.
