PHY 482: Electricity & Magnetism II

“I was just excited to have challenging work to do and smart people to work with.”
–Katherine Johnson (1918-2020)


Physics 482, E&M II, is the second semester of our two-semester sequence of junior-level classical electromagnetism. In this course, we will cover some of the most important physical and mathematical models in the field. Come ready to think hard and work together to master the material! Prerequisite — PHY 481, Electricity & Magnetism I

Required Materials:
1. J.D.Griffiths. Introduction to Electromagnetism, 4th Edition
2. An “iClicker”, available at the MSU bookstore



My Commitment to Inclusive Educational Environments
I am fully committed to providing inclusive environments where all students are comfortable to speak up about our ideas, questions, and experiences. Specifically, our classroom, virtual environments, and all other interactions are expected to be as welcoming and inclusive as possible. If I can do anything to make these spaces a better learning environment for you or you observe or experience behaviors that violate our commitment to inclusive educational environments, please let me know as soon as possible.
