Course Description[edit]

Extended content

PHY2410: Introductory survey of electricity and magnetism. Uses calculus in interpreting physical phenomena. Topics include electric field and potential, currents, DC circuits, magnetic fields, Faraday's law, and optics.

General Physics II is a General Education 4 credit hour course with a required 1 credit hour lab. Prerequisites: Undergraduate level PHY 2400 Minimum Grade of D and Undergraduate level MTH 2300 Minimum Grade of D and Undergraduate level MTH 2310 Minimum Grade of D (MTH 2310 can be taken concurrently). Corequisites: PHY2410L (mandatory attendance); PHY2410R. Each student is enrolled in either the Tuesday or Thursday section. Depending on how these sections are filled, it may or may not be possible to permit students to switch sections.

Grades[edit]

  • 75% of the grade is based on the Scheduled Exams
  • 15% is based on Quizzes
  • 10% is based on Labs

Since we have more than enough labs and quizzes, no lab, quiz or test can performed at a later date if you are absent. But, three of your worst performances on labs and quizzes will be automatically dropped. Also, your worst Scheduled Exam will count as a quiz.

At each lab it will be announced whether the report is to be turned in electronically or on paper. Paper reports are due at the end of the lab, and electronically prepared reports are due via Pilot before next week's lab begins.

Four ways to get help[edit]

Getting help

Writing: Because writing is such an important part of a college education, the Student Success Center provides free writing support to all Wright State students, at any stage of your writing process and for any class. I encourage you to visit the SSC for help with any aspect of your writing, from research to revision. Sessions are available M-Th by appointment or walk-in from 10-5 pm and Fridays by appointment only from 10-5. To make an appointment, stop by the SSC (182 Andrews Hall) or call 419-586-0333. For more information about the SSC, their hours, and scheduling, please visit: https://lake.wright.edu/campus-life/student-success-center.

Math: The Student Success Center offers free assistance to students enrolled in mathematics courses within the Wright State Catalog. I encourage you to visit the SSC for help with any aspect of math above DEV. Sessions are available M-Th by appointment or walk-in from 10-5 pm and Fridays by appointment only from 10-5 pm. To make an appointment, stop by the SSC (182 Andrew Hall) or call 419-586-0333. For more information about the SSC, their hours, and scheduling, please visit: https://lake.wright.edu/campus-life/student-success-center.

LTC: The Library & Technology Center provides free access to scholarly resources in all formats to all Wright State students. WSU students can also visit the LTC for assistance with creating or editing multimedia projects i.e. PowerPoint, Voiceovers, Website development, etc., free of charge. The LTC is temporarily located in 182 Andrews Hall. For additional information about the LTC and the services they provide please call (419) 586-0333, or visit the LTC M-Fri from 9am-5pm

Office of Disability Services: If a student has a disability that will require special accommodations, it is essential that he or she discuss it with the instructor and/or The Office of Disability Services (ODS) before or during the first week of the semester. ODS will work with these students on an individual basis to determine what services, equipment, and accommodations would be appropriate regarding their documented needs. Students who may qualify for these types of services should initiate contact with the instructor and/ or ODS as soon as possible to enable the university to meet their needs.  Please call Deanna Springer at 419-586-0366, email deanna.springer@wright.edu or visit ODS (Rm 182 Andrews) for more information.
