Week 8

Last half of the eigth week:  Sections 28.4 (resonant response) and 28.3 (free LC and LCR), plus Sections 28.5 and 28.6 (filters and transformers). If I have time, I will spend some time on aspects of electrical safety that appear in Section 24.5 of our textbook, particularly household wiring. We then take a final look at Maxwell's Equations in Section 29.1 before moving on to Electromagnetic Waves and light.

Week 9

Mon 7/3:  Sections 29.1 through 29.3, Maxwell's Equations and Ampere's Law revisited, followed by 29.4 (EM waves)..

Tues 7/4:  NO CLASS - Independence Day Holiday.

Wed 7/5:  More about EM waves from Section 29.5 (polarization), Section 34.3 on Photons and Section 29.8 on light pressure, then Section 29.6 (spectra).

Thurs 7/6:  is devoted to exam 3.

Rest of the twelfth week: 


Week 10

Mon 7/10:  Wrap up EM waves (sections 29.8 and/or 29.6) and then start optics with Section 30.1 on reflection and Section 30.2 on refraction.

Middle of week 10:  Section 30.3 (refraction examples) and 30.4, then ray optics in Sections 31.1, 31.2 (mirrors and lenses).

Thurs 7/13:  Sections 31.3 and 31.4 (optical devices); start Section 32.1 (interference).


Week 11

Mon 7/17:  Section 32.2 (interference).
(Sections 32.1 and 32.2 are usually not on Exam 4.)

Rest of week 14:  Start unit 5 (Section 32.3 (gratings), Section 32.5 (diffraction), and Section 32.6 followed by 32.4 on thin films.).

Thurs 7/20:  Exam 4, sections 28.5? thru 32.3? covered by HW-20 thru HW-26?.
