KING FAHD UNIVERSITY OF PETROLEUM AND MINERALS

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS

Physics 102 - General Physics II - Fall Session 2000 - 2001 (001)

Course Schedule, Coordination and Grading Policy

1) Course Description (Undergraduate bulletin 1997-98)

A continuation of Physics 101. Topics covered include: Wave motion; Sound; Temperature; First and second laws of thermodynamics; Kinetic theory of gasses; Coulomb's law; Electric field; Gauss' law; Electric potential; Capacitors and dielectrics; Circuits; The magnetic field; Faraday's law; Ampere's law.

2) Pre-requisite (Math 101) or Co-requisite (Math 102)

3) Textbook : "Physics For Scientists and Engineers With Modern Physics", by R.A. Serway, Fourth Edition, Saunders College Publishing 1996.

  1. Method: The course material will be presented in lectures. Problem-solving techniques will be shown in recitations. Attendance in both lectures and recitations is compulsory.

5) Grading Policy

(A) Course grade

The course grade will be evaluated as follows:

Class-work 20%

Laboratory 20%

First major exam 15%

Second major exam 15%

Final exam 30%

    1. Class-work shall comprise of:

Solutions to the homework problems will be posted on the Physics 102 notice board about three days after completion of the corresponding chapter. The average final class-work score for each section will be fixed at 12.00/20. The homework problems are assigned from outside the textbook and will be distributed in the class.

(C) Laboratory work

The lab work score will be based on any or a combination of the lab. reports, lab. quizzes, lab. exams, ... etc. as chosen by the lab. instructors. The average final laboratory work score for each section will be fixed at 14.00/20 and the standard deviation should be greater than or equal to 1.0.

Lab sessions will start on the second week of the classes, i.e. 09 September , 2000.

(D) Major and final examinations

The major exams and the final exam will be of multiple-choice type. The exams are scheduled as follows:

First major exam Saunday, 8t Oct. , 2000 (Chapters 16 - 21)

Second Major Exam Tuesday, 21 Nov., 2000 (Chapters 22 - 27)

Final Exam Saturday, 6 Jan., 2001 (Chapters 16 - 31)

6) Policy on make-up exams

a) If you miss a major or final exam, you should go and see the Coordinator with your official excuse within three days after the exam.

b) Only official excuses are accepted. Personal excuses are not allowed.

c) If you attend the exam, you cannot have a make-up exam.

    1. If you miss the exam without a valid excuse, you get a ZERO score for that exam.
    2. The make-up will be given once, and no make-up for the make-up.

7) Attendance: Attendance will be enforced and evaluated according to current university regulations. A DN grade will be given to any student exceeding 12 absences (LLF + Rec.) without official excuses and/or three absences in laboratory experiments. Any student in possession of an excuse for officially authorized absence must present this excuse to his instructor no later than one week following his resumption of class attendance. Only those students who have less than 6 absences in the whole semester shall be promoted to upper grade if they reach the borderline between two grades (for example F to D or B to B+ etc.).
