half way done!

Sign in to follow this  


So today was our first day of Electricity and Magnetism in Physics-C. I've been anticipating this heavily, since I applied to college as an Electrical Engineer, and i want to see what E&M is like using calculus. It should be fun.

Now that we've summed up all of mechanics (at this level), everything seems pretty straight forward. For the most part, physics -C is just an advanced physics - B that involves a bunch of calculus and a couple completely new topics like everything that has to do with Moment of Inertia.

Hopefully E&M is as straightforward, though i have heard that it can be rough and involves probability and imaginary numbers. Im not really sure why imaginary numbers would come into play - does anyone have any ideas about that?

Either way, we are have way done and there is 3.5 months till APs. The year is flying by fast!

The good news and the bad news... E&M does involve probability and imaginary numbers. Probability at the nano-scale (which we may talk about with a guest speaker on Wednesday), and imaginary numbers first come into play in dealing with AC circuits. And we won't get into much depth with either of those in this semester.
