PHY 102 + Lab: University Physics - II

Offered Under: All Undergraduate Programs.

This is one of the courses offered by the university, which fulfills the requirement of Basic Sciences for graduation from the university. This course is mandatory for the students who wish to major in Computer Science (CS) or in any Engineering Subject. The course forms a one-year standard course in University Physics. There is no prerequisite for this course though it is highly recommended that the students must have a fair amount of background in mathematics. Specially, knowledge of Calculus will be required sometimes. The course will lay emphasis mainly upon physical description of processes rather than complicated mathematical derivations.

Topics covered are: Electricity and Magnetism – Coulomb’s Law, electric field, Gauss’ Law, electric potential, capacitance and dielectric, current, resistance, EMF, magnetic field, induction and inductance, DC circuits, alternating currents and circuits, electromagnetic waves; Electronics – network theorems, basic semiconductor concepts, semiconductor diode and rectifier circuits, bipolar transistor, FET, MOSFET, amplifier and operational amplifier.
