**Bring**a scientific, preferably graphic, calculator with you to each class.

Calculus-Based Physics II is a lecture/demonstration course in thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism at the calculus level for science and engineering students.

PREREQUISITE: PHYS 1310. PRE- or COREQUISITE: MATH 1520

RECOMMENDED COREQUISITE: PHYS 1320L– Students are **strongly advised** to take the lab accompanying the lecture to gain full insight into the concepts.

If a student does not meet these requirements, he or she may be dropped from the class at any time.

The overall objective is that the student be able to describe physical phenomena using a variety of models and develop certain analytical skills associated with problem solving. By the end of the course the student should be able to:

- Apply the concepts of electric charge, electric field and electric potential to solve problems
- Sketch the electric field in the vicinity of point, line, sheet, and spherical distributions of static electric charge
**.** - Sketch the magnetic field in the vicinity of line, ring, sheet, and solenoid distributions of steady current
**.** - Describe the relationship between electric field and electric potential
**.** - Calculate the Lorentz force on a moving charge for simple geometries of the fields and use it to analyze the motion of charged particles
**.** - Apply the integral forms of Maxwell’s equations
**.** - Calculate the energy of electromagnetic fields
**.** - Analyze DC circuits
**.** - Describe and apply the laws of thermodynamics

**Attendance:**According to CNM regulations, students enrolled for credit or audit are expected to attend all class sessions. Attendance is taken daily at the beginning of class. If you come in after attendance has been taken, please inform me of your attendance after class. Students that come in more than 10 minutes late are considered absent for the class. Students who miss the equivalent of 15%, or 5 classes, may be dropped from the class. Students must keep in mind, however, that it is ultimately their responsibility to withdraw from the course. Absences from class do not relieve students from responsibility for missed assignments, material covered in class or exams.**Collaborative In-Class Sessions:**We will be engaging in collaborative work most of our class meetings. Be respectful of your yourself, your peers and your environment. Come well prepared and ready to contribute. Clean your area before you leave class.**Weekly Summaries:**In college, the recommended study-time you need to spend outside of class should be 2.5-3 times the number of course credit hours, for this course you need to be engaged with physics for 10-12 hours each week outside of class. We will never be able to cover all of the material from each chapter in class. At the beginning of each week, you will print out and submit a one-page typed summary, in your own words, of the content/concepts from the prior week’s material. For example, at the beginning of week 2, you will need to submit a summary of chapter 5. Please make these summaries single spaced and use 12-point font. Always include general formulas from each chapter**making use of the Equation Editor in MS Word**, accessed via “Insert -> Equation”. Come by my office hours if you need assistance. Please save these chapter summaries in a Physics 1320 folder on your computer, they will serve well in assessment preparation. It is advised that you complete the chapter summaries prior to engaging with the homework problems. Late summaries are not accepted, if you are unable to attend class, the summary must be sent via email before the end of the classtime.**Homework:**Homework will be assigned on a weekly basis. The homework assignments and solutions can be found on our class website, barbsphysics.net, under the homework tab. Answers to the odd numbered problems are in the back of your book. Each homework score will range from 0 to 10 points. Doing the homework is very important for digesting the material and crucial to performing well on the quizzes, midterm and final exam. Late homeworks are not accepted, if you are unable to attend class, the homework must be sent via email before the end of the classtime.**Quizzes**: Twelve quizzes are scheduled. Each quiz will be administered at the beginning of the week. Quizzes will be primarily based on in-class problems and homework. Your class attendance/participation, your chapter summary AND completing your homework are important to doing well on the quizzes. Both problem-solving skills and a conceptual understanding are important to your success. There may be multiple choice questions, free response problems, and/or brief explanations. You may continually build on an 8”x11” one-sidedsheet that you can use for each successive quiz, the midterm exam and the final exam. Formulas will not be supplied for any of the assessments. There will be no make-up quizzes. You will be allowed to submit two quiz corrections for up to 50% of your missed points earned back only if you follow the Quiz Corrections Format on our assessments page. The corrections are due at the beginning of the class that falls just after your quiz was returned.*formula-only***Midterm Exam:**A mandatory comprehensive midterm exam will be administered to Section 101 on Thursday 3/5/2020, 9:30-11:30 am, in L 201 and administered to Section 102 on Wednesday 3/4/2020, 3:30-5:30 pm, in S102 . You may continually build on an 8”x11” one-sidedsheet that you can use for each quiz, the midterm exam and the final exam.*formula-only***Final Exam:**A mandatory comprehensive final will be given on the last day of class.**The final exam for Section 101 will be Thursday, April 23rd, 9:30-11:30 am in SB 102and the final exam for Section 102 will be Wednesday, April 22nd, 3:30-5:30 pm in L 201 .**Students may generate an 8”x11” two-sided formula sheet for the final exam. You may continually build on an 8”x11”sheet that you can use for each quiz, the midterm exam and the final exam.*formula-only***All students must receive a grade above 50% on the final exam in order to pass this course.**

In the event that CNM closes on the day of the final exam, the final grade will be calculated based on all work assessed up to that point in the course.

Grades will be calculated according to the following scheme:

- Quiz average, with the lowest score dropped, will yield 25% of your semester grade.
- Homework average with the lowest score dropped yields 10% of your semester grade.
- Weekly summaries average, with the lowest score dropped yields 10% of your semester grade.
- Collaboration participation average yields 5% of your semester grade. This grade will be based on how well prepared you were for class, and how effectively you participated in each collaborative session.
- Midterm yields 25% of your semester grade.
- Final exam yields 25% of your semester grade.

**Note: All students must receive a grade above 50% on the final exam in order to pass this course. **

In the event CNM closes on the day of the final exam, final grades for students will be calculated based on all work assessed up to that point in the course.

(A 90 -100%) (B 80 - 89.9%) (C 70 - 79.9%) (D 60 - 69.9%) (F below 60%)

Students are expected to regularly check barbsphysics.net. It is there that you will find homeworksolutions, a copy of the syllabus, and any other class materials.

This schedule is approximate. To finish the necessary material, i.e., all that is listed above, it is extremely important for you to keep up with the class. For most humans, physics is not easy. But with organization, time and effort you can do it! I am here to help. Please ask when you have questions and take advantage of my office hours!

Due to the intensity of the information in the lecture and laboratory classes, classroom disruptions will not be tolerated. In CNM classrooms and laboratories, all cellular telephones and pagers must be turned off or switched to silent or vibrator mode. Electronic entertainment devices are to be turned off and headphones removed. Students being disruptive will be asked to leave the class.

Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. As a CNM student you agree to adhere to the CNM Integrity Policy. Please see the CNM Integrity Policy for details.

We will accommodate students with disabilities documented by the CNM Disability Resource Center. During the first two weeks of the semester, those students should inform the instructor of their particular needs.

PaperCut is an element of the sustainability effort at CNM. Its purpose is to reduce paper usage. Each student has an online account with an allotment of 150 free printer pages per term. If this allotment runs out, additional pages may be purchased by the student. For more information, go to the PaperCut website.

The Faculty feedback system allows your instructor to securely provide feedback on your performance in this course. If your instructor uses it, you may be contacted by a CNM Academic/Achievement Coach to follow up on the feedback. You can read more about the system here.

In an effort to respect all students, CNM has created smoke-free zones as well as designated smoking areas at all CNM locations. The use of tobacco products, including the use of chewing tobacco and e-cigarettes is limited to the designated smoking areas and banned from all other areas. View CNM's smoking policy and a map of the designated smoking areas.
