Physics 4A For Physics Majors-Mechanics

Instructor: Cliff Surko

Location: Warren Lecture Hall 2111;

Important note about math courses for students taking the Physics 4 series: Physics 4C is Electricity and Magnetism, and vector calculus is used extensively in this course. As a consequence, the Physics Department recommends that you consider taking Math 20E (vector calculus) as soon as possible. Since the prerequisite for Math 20D, 20E and 20F is the same, Math 20C, we recommend that you take 20E right after 20C (then followed by 20D and 20F).

Note from Professor Surko: The class did quite well on the final exam. Congratulations!

There is now a sample formula sheet on the handouts page. While details may vary slightly, this sheet is very close to the level and kinds of formulas that will be included with the remaining quizzes and the final.

Elizabeth Gire will run a review session for the final on Saturday, March 18 from 11 am to 12:50 pm in CSB 004.

Professor Surko will have a special office hour Monday, March 20, from 2 - 4 pm.
