Lecture Details

For more information about Professor Shankars book based on the lectures from this course,Â Fundamentals of Physics Mechanics,Â Relativity, and Thermodynamics, visitÂ httpbit.ly1jFIqNu. Fundamentals of Physics, II (PHYS 201) The course begins with a discussion of electricity. The concept of charge is introduced, and the properties of electrical forces are compared with those of other familiar forces, such as gravitation. Coulombs Law, along with the principle of superposition, allows for the calculation of electrostatic forces from a given charge distribution. 0000 - Chapter 1.
