PHY-216 Introductory Electricity and Magnetism

3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab, 3 credits

This course introduces topics in Electricity and Magnetism and explores both their theoretical and practical applications. Students will study electric charges, electrostatic forces and fields, electric potential, and capacitance, as well as magnetic forces and fields, magnetic-field generation, magnetic flux, and inductance. Students will work with both direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) circuits, starting with the specific cases of RC, LR, and LC circuits, and finishing with LRC curcuits. Maxwell's equations will also be introduced.


  • Completion of PHY 121 and MAT 182
  • MAT 210 must be taken concurrently if not already completed
  • Take PHY-216L
