PC users press "CTRL" + "P".PHY 241: University Physics IIICourse and Faculty InformationCourse Description: This course provides an introduction to thermodynamics, kinetic theory, physical andwave optics, relativity, photons, matter waves, atomic physics. This course builds on knowledge of mechanicsand electric and magnetic fields. It presents principles of physics and topics that are important for a moderneducation in a science/engineering curriculum.Credits: 3Prerequisites:PHY 131MAT 266 or MAT 271 with C or better; PHY 121 with C or better; Pre/Co-requisite: MAT 267 or MAT 272with C or better if completed.Students are required to have passed the previous course, PHY-131: University Physics II. For PHY 131and PHY 241, a strong background in calculus is necessary as well as familiarity with vectors andtrigonometry. Instructor: Professor Robert J. NemanichContact Info: Office: PSB-353, (Bateman Physical Science Complex wing B, floor 3, room 353)Phone: 480-965-2240Email address: [email protected] Hours: 9:00-10:00 am Thursdays. (or to be arranged via email)Course Learning OutcomesAt the completion of this course, students will be able to:Understand how work, heat and energy is transformed into each other and transferred.4/14/22, 7:00 PMSyllabus for PHY 241: University Physics III (2022 Spring)https://canvas.asu.edu/courses/105753/assignments/syllabus2/12Understand macroscopic thermodynamic properties of solids, liquids and gases in terms of themicroscopic motion of atoms and molecules.Understand the principle of superposition, and how it leads to interference, diffraction and standing wavesin string waves, sound waves and light waves.Understand the principles of relativity: the speed of light is constant and all the laws of physics are thesame in all inertial frames of reference.Apply the principles of relativity to solve problems of time dilation and length contraction.Understand rest energy, kinetic energy and the conversion of mass and energy. Understand that photons have quantized energy and are emitted and adsorbed in an all-or-nothing basis.Understand quantized levels in atoms and light emission and absorption.Understand the wave nature of matter and the uncertainty principle.Understand the wave function as related to probability density fror quantum systems. Apply Schrodinger's equation to understand the wave function for some one dimensional systems.Textbooks/MaterialsTitle: Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics Author: Randall D.
