PH2019 - Introduction to Electromagnetism Optics and Early Quantum
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
The fundamental principles of Electromagnetism, Optics and Early Quantum are taught
to give student the basic skills required for more advanced studies in Engineering
and Physics. Electromagnetism is one of the fundamental areas of Physics that has
applications in wide variety of applications. The work covered is a precursor to applications
to subjects such as Antenna design, EM shielding, propagation, electro-machinery,
fibre-optic communications, mobile phone technology and computer technology to mention
just a few. Topics include Gauss's Law, Biot Savart law, Ampere's law, plane waves,
geometric optics, diffraction, interference, and early quantum.
- demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and laws fundamental to Advanced Optics,
- solve problems in Advanced Optics, and Electromagnetism, using the necessary physics
concepts, principles, and disciplinary areas of mathematics;
- undertake laboratory work by gathering, analysing, and documenting experimental and
- communicate experimental physics data, results, and analysis by producing a workbook
detailing experimental observations.
