In general, I will respond expeditiously to email for any questions.
I will also be available right after class. Beyond these, we can then set up
follow-up appointments as needed. Questions in class are strongly encouraged.
One class hour per week will be devoted to working problems and further discussion.

Vol 2A (Electricity) and Vol 2B (Electrodynamics, Light)
ISBN 0-7167-0810-8 (Vol 2 Hardback Ch 21-41)
Most course materials will be put on a website for this class.
The URL is http://www.glue.umd.edu/~hassam/272/
Description: The course is intended to provide an introduction to gravitational and
electromagnetic fields. All of the material in the required textbook
will not be covered. Topics include gravitation, Coulomb's law, the electric field,
Gauss' law, the electric potential, capacitors and dielectrics,
current and resistance, DC circuits, the magnetic field, Ampere's and
Faraday's laws, inductance and the integral formulation of Maxwell's equations.
The emphasis in the class will be on understanding important physics concepts.
Homework: Assignments will be handed
out once a week and will be due
in one week from that date. Late homework is not accepted.
Grading: Your course grade will be computed on the basis of 600 points awarded as follows:
Homework (drop 2 low ones) 100
1st midterm 100
2nd midterm 100
3rd midterm 100
Final exam 200
