PHYS 204 - General Physics II (Non-Engineering)


The second of two related courses (with PHYS 203 ) designed for pre-professional programs and for transfer to four-year institutions. The two-course series presents fundamental concepts and laws of physics with emphasis on principles and development of scientific methods applied to physical relationships. PHYS 204 presents the laws of electricity and magnetism, optics, and selected topics in modern physics. Calculus is not needed, but strong algebra and trigonometry knowledge is required. PREREQUISITE(S): PHYS 203  or consent of department. Assessment Level(s): ENGL 101 /ENGL 011 , READ 120 . Three hours lecture, four hours laboratory/discussion each week. Formerly PH 204.

4 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

  • Identify and apply physical principles and laws associated with electricity, magnetism, and modern physics.
  • Explain and analyze key concepts related to specific interactions in electric and magnetic fields.
  • Develop strategies to solve physics problems involving electricity, magnetism, and modern physics using physical and mathematical principles.
  • Apply the scientific method of laboratory investigations to physical concepts and laws in electricity, magnetism, and modern physics.
  • Synthesize, interpret, and communicate clearly through written laboratory reports the results of experiments conducted in electricity, magnetism, and modern physics.
