  • ENVS 3070 - Energy and the Environment
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    Examines contemporary issues in energy consumption and its environmental impact, including fossil fuel use and depletion; nuclear energy and waste disposal; solar, wind, hydroelectric, and other renewable sources; home heating; energy storage; fuel cells; and alternative transportation vehicles. Includes some basic physical concepts and principles that often constrain choices. No background in physics is required. Same as PHYS 3070.
  • PHYS 1020 - Physics of Everyday Life 2
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Intended primarily for nonscientists, this course is a continuation of PHYS 1010. Includes electrical power generation and distribution, electrical motors, radio, television, computers, copiers, lasers, fluorescent lights, cameras, and medical imaging. Department enforced prereq., high school algebra.
  • PHYS 2020 - General Physics 2
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Includes three lectures, one two-hour laboratory/recitation per week, plus three evening exams in the fall and spring semesters. Covers electricity and magnetism, light and modern physics. Designed for life science majors, including premed students. Natural science majors with a knowledge of calculus and others taking calculus are urged to take the calculus-based courses PHYS 1110, PHYS 1120, PHYS 1140 and PHYS 2130, rather than PHYS 2010 and PHYS 2020.

Included are some basic physical concepts and principles that often constrain choices. No background in physics is required. Same as ENVS 3070.
  • PHYS 3220 - Quantum Mechanics 1
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Introduces quantum mechanics with wave, operator and matrix computational techniques. Investigates solutions for harmonic oscillator, potential well and systems with angular momentum. Develops a quantitative description of one-electron atoms in lowest order.
  • PHYS 3310 - Principles of Electricity and Magnetism 1
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021
    Covers mathematical theory of electricity and magnetism, including electrostatics, magnetostatics, and polarized media, and provides an introduction to electromagnetic fields, waves, and special relativity.
