PHY 132 - Physics for Scientists and Engineers II, 4 credit hours


Prerequisite(s): Four years of high school mathematics, including trigonometry, or MTH 140  .
Corequisite(s): Except by permission of the instructor, PHY 151  is to be taken concurrently with PHY 131  and PHY 152  to be taken concurrently with PHY 132.
A two-semester sequence covering the standard physics topics expected for a major in physics, chemistry, pre-med, or pre-engineering. Concepts are presented primarily in lecture demonstration form, but in a sufficiently small class setting that allows for student questions. The course emphasizes qualitative and quantitative problem solving skills. PHY 131  emphasizes mechanics and heat while PHY 132 delves into electricity, magnetism, light, and optics. Students may not take both PHY 131  and PHY 145  or both PHY 132 and PHY 146  for credit.
