Physics 52

Course description

Physics 52 is a calculus-based treatment of mechanical waves, light, spectra, quantization of electromagnetic radiation; geometric and physical optics; temperature, heat and thermodynamics. This course is taken by students majoring in engineering, chemistry, meteorology, and physics.


Physics 52 has a pre-requisite of a C or better in Physics 51 and Math 31.

Adding and changing sections

Physics 52 is not in as high demand as 50 and 51, so you should be able to add the course as long as you are somewhat flexible about what sections of lecture and lab work for you. I don't recommend waiting around because I will not give out any add codes after the first day of classes.
