PHY 142 - Classical Physics II Honors 2017

Welcome to the main webpage for PHY 142 Spring 2017!

This course is the Honor's version of Classical Physics course. The topics covered will be the same as in PHY132, but if you choose to take this course you should expect to be challenged. We will be going in to greater depth, calculus will be used extensively, and significant effort will be required outside of classes and recitations. But if you like Physics, it will be well worth the effort!

The class group will be the same for lecture and recitations and we will meet in the following times and places.

  • Lectures - Monday, Wednesday, Friday 12:00 PM - 12:53 PM Earth&Space 069
  • Recitation - Tuesday 10:00AM - 11:20 AM Harriman 112

You should read the course syllabus carefully as it contains all the important information about the organization of the course.

Attendance at all class meetings is expected and will help you get most out of this challenging course. As mentioned in the syllabus, there will be one quiz problem in many of the recitation sessions geared towards getting you prepared for solving exam problems. In addition, there will be one or two concept questions in the exams that might refer to a demonstration in class.

The following link is the place to find the lecture notes; updates will occur each weekend.

The Course calendar contains all the important dates for the semester.

Your instructor is Prof. Krishna Kumar. My office is C111 in the Physics Building.

Office hours: 9:30 am to 10:30 am on Wednesday and 3 pm to 4 pm on Thursdays
