KING FAHD UNIVERSITY OF PETROLEUM AND MINERALS

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS

Physics 102 - General Physics II - First Semester 1999 (992)

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; Farday's law; Ampere's law.

2) Pre-requisite or Co-requisite

Math 101 and Math 102

3) Textbook

"Physics For Scientists and Engineers With Modern Physics", by R.A. Serway, Fourth Edition,

Saunders College Publishing 1996.

4) 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:

Classwork 20%

Laboratory 20%

First major exam 15%

Second major exam 15%

Final exam 30%

(B) Classwork

The classwork shall comprise of a minimum of 5 quizzes, homework, etc., and any other assignments the instructor wishes to give. Solutions to the homework problems shown on the attached course schedule will be posted on the Physics 102 notice board according to the posted schedule. The average final class-work score for each section will be fixed at 12/20.

(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 lab-work score for each section will be fixed at 14/20 and the standard deviation will be greater than or equal to 1.0.

Lab sessions will start on the second week of classes, 22 January, 2000 .

(D) Major and final examinations

Major exams are of problem-solving type and the final exam will be of multiple-choice type. Majors and final examinations are scheduled as follows:

First major exam Sunday, 20 February, 2000 (Chapters 16 - 21)

Second Major Exam Tuesday, 18 April, 2000 (Chapters 22 - 27)

Final Exam Saturday 13 May, 2000 (Chapters 16 - 31)
