Physics 270 is the third of a three semester series in general physics offered at the University of Maryland during the 2009 Fall semester. This survey course will use algebra, trigonometry, calculus, and vector calculus, and is recommended for engineering majors. The course is a continuation of Phys260 and covers magnetism, electromagnetic induction, Maxwell’s equations and electromagnetic waves, physical and geometric optics, and some aspects of “modern physics” which include relativity and quantum phenomenon.
