Goals of the Course(JPN)
Goals of the Course
|This is a companion course to Fundamentals of Physics III, and offers practical exercises for mastering the concepts introduced in those lectures. Students enrolled in Fundamentals of Physics III are strongly urged to enroll this tutorial course.
The aims of this course are to deepen students’ understanding of basic Physics of electricity and magnetism and to cultivate their ability to apply Physics knowledge to problem-solving.
Objectives of the Course(JPN)
Objectives of the Course
|Students will significantly improve their understanding of the elementary Electricity and Magnetism introduced in the FPIII course, as well as their proficiency in solving simple related problems.|
Course Content / Plan
|Course Content / Plan
Students must solve problems and present their solutions during the tutorial. Topics covered include (Chapter references are to the textbook by Resnick, Halliday and Walker):
Chapter 21: Electric Charge
Chapter 22: Electric Fields
Chapter 23: Gauss’ Law
Chapter 24: Electric Potential
Chapter 25: Capacitance
Chapter 26: Current and Resistance
Chapter 27: Circuits
Chapter 28: Magnetic Fields
Chapter 29: Magnetic Fields Due to Currents
Chapter 30: Induction and Inductance
Course Prerequisites and Related Courses
|Fundamentals of Physics 1 and 2; concurrent enrolment in Fundamentals of Physics III.|
Course Evaluation Method and Criteria
|Class attendance is required. Absentee must give a valid reason.
Class Attendance, performance and attitude: 10%; Assignments 45%; Tutorial reports, quizzes 45%.
|Resnick, Halliday and Walker, Wiley. Or WILEYPLUS Online.
The WileyPlus website has many useful videos and worked examples. You should explore the resources available on that website
|Leighton, R.B. & Feynman, R.P., Feynman Lectures on Physics (Volume 2), Pearson.
This is a Year 2 level textbook, but even in Year 1 it is very useful.
Study Load(Self-directed Learning Outside Course Hours)
|You are expected to revise the lecture notes, read and work through the textbook, and solve assignment problems outside FPIII lecture and FPT2a tutorial hours. You cannot learn physics by only attending lectures and listening in tutorials: you must play an active role. The FPIII lecture course exams will consist of questions covering both lecture notes and assignments.
Students must be willing to work hard if they want to achieve a good, internationally competitive level.
Consultation with, or help from, the tutor (JW) is available at anytime online using MS Teams.
Language Used in the Course
Lecture format, etc.
|Live lectures via MS Teams (Online only). Before the start of semester students should ensure that they have correctly installed MS Teams using their THERS (国立大学法人東海国立大学機構 ) email account.|
Additional measures for remote class (on-demand class)
|All lectures will be live via MS Teams (online only).
A lecture video will be available immediately after each lecture to help with student revision.
The lecturer will be available at most times during the day to answer questions via Teams chat.
