PHYSICS 2135 (previously 24) Engineering Physics II Spring 2015 Dr. Allan Pringle Course Instructor Room 122 Physics, 341 ‑ 4031 http://www.mst.edu/~pringle email@example.com Lectures: http://physics.mst.edu/classes/class24/ Online quizzes: blackboard.mst.edublackboard.mst.edu
In recitation yesterday, you picked up the handout containing: Course Handbook Syllabus (course schedule and assigned homework) Starting Equations Special Homework assignments. Announcements Make sure you recorded your recitation instructor’s name and your recitation section letter on the first page of the handout. Under the new course numbering scheme, Physics 24 has become Physics 2135. You will need to look for Physics 2135 when you log in to Blackboard. Engineering Physics I is now Physics 1135. I will frequently refer to that course as Physics 23, because that’s what it was for many decades!
From the syllabus: read 1: 1-4 2. Thursday, January 22 1: 13, 18 (also express the force in unit vector notation), 28, 87, Special Homework #1 You can find homework assignments online here: http://campus.mst.edu/physics/courses/24/Assignments/syllabus.pdf Your recitation instructor will call students to the board tomorrow to present their homework solutions to the class. recitation number 2 chapter 1
If you are called on to do boardwork, you may use your calculator, a blank handout problem sheet (which we will provide), and the starting equation sheet. Nothing else. We do understand that this is the first week of class. Homework help will be available in the Physics Learning Center (PLC), rooms 129 and 130 Physics, from 2-4:30 pm and 6-8:30 pm. The Physics 2135 Final Exam will be from 7:30-9:30 AM on Friday, May 15, 2015. Make sure you have nothing else scheduled during this time period!
Go to http://physics.mst.edu/currentcourses/labs/index.html to get a lab schedule. There are no labs this week. Odd-numbered sections meet next week (3L05 is odd, 3L06 is even). http://physics.mst.edu/currentcourses/labs/index.html You must purchase a lab manual. Go to the department office, room 102, to purchase your lab manual! The cost is $25.00. Do not ask me for a lab manual; I do not have them! You will not receive a lab grade (15% of the course points) if you don’t have a lab manual!

Mastering Physics is included in the package you buy at the bookstore. You may use Mastering Physics as a supplement to lectures and recitations. I will “assign” all of the Mastering Physics material that is related to Physics 2135. This is optional material, and will not *count towards your course grade. *Knowledge you acquire while using Mastering Physics could improve your course grade. Instructions for signing up for Mastering Physics are here.here
This semester we study electromagnetic forces and their consequences. These forces are responsible for holding together living and man-made things, as well as all things in nature, so I suppose they are worth studying… …not to mention the fact that the technology that dominates your life depends on electromagnetic forces.
