Phy 2410 General Physics II
Instructor: Guy Vandegrift email:guy.vandegrift@wright.edu
236-Dwyer Hall Wright State University Lake Campus, Celina OH 45822


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. (4 credit hours.) Also required is the lab PHY2410L: Introductory physics laboratory problems in mechanics, oscillation and thermodynamics (1 credit hour.)

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; PHY2410R

The students in the introductory physics class will be expected to:

  1. Understand the nature of scientific inquiry
  2. Critically apply knowledge of physical theory to a variety of physical problems
  3. Distinguish between science and technology and recognize their roles in society
  4. Demonstrate an awareness of theoretical, practical, creative and cultural dimensions of scientific inquiry
  5. Communicate an understanding of the basic physical principles.

Teaching Materials[edit]

Textbook: OpenStax University Physics[edit]

Test bank[edit]

This bank currently contains xxx questions and is an Open Educational Resource. But some questions on exams might not appear in the bank. The "study" version contains one rendition of each problem. For more practice use "all" version. This pdf file is much larger because it contains 10 or more renditions of each numerical question, each with a different set of numerical values.

Topics Covered in a 15 week course[edit]

The volume and chapter refer to OpenStax University Physics. The N column lists how many questions are in the quizbank quiz. Click on PDF in the 5th column of the first row to view the quizbank. The number in that section links to the quiz. Any question in this bank might be on an exam, and questions not on the bank might even appear on an exam. But the "Essential" questions listed in the last column are a good place to start when preparing for an exam.

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.

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.
