## Overview of class

This course sequence is similar to 135-1 but mathematically more advanced. Concurrent registration in the ISP mathematics course, MATH 281-1,2,3 or its equivalent is required. PHYSICS 125-1 covers Newtonian mechanics: motion in 2 and 3 dimensions, Newton's laws, work and kinetic energy, conservation laws for energy, momentum, and angular momentum, rotational dynamics, gravity, central forces, planetary motion. PHYSICS 125-2 covers classical electricity and magnetism: Coulomb's law, electric fields, complex charge distributions, electrostatic potential, capacitance, resistance, inductance, circuits, magnetic fields, magnetic induction, alternating circuits, Maxwell's equations. PHYSICS 125-3 covers development of modern physics starting from Maxwell's equations: wave equations, light, interference, diffraction, Bohr model of the hydrogen atom, photo-electric effect, Compton scattering, quantum mechanics, Schrodinger equation and applications, harmonic oscillator, atoms, molecules, special relativity.
