Lecturer:  Joseph Asare 
Unit:  3 
Prerequisite:  Physics 1 , 
Overview:  The subject of electromagnetism is a combination of electrostatics phenomena, magnetism, and current electricity. These must have seemed at one time to be entirely different phenomena until in 1829 when Oersted discovered that an electric current is surrounded by a magnetic field. The basic phenomena and the connections between these three disciplines were ultimately described by Maxwell towards the end of the nineteenth century in four famous equations called the Maxwell's Equations. The course acquaints the student with concepts of electric and magnetic fields associated with particles and how these are affected in the presence of other particles. 
Aims:  The aim of this module is to aid students in understanding the broadbased fundamental principles of electricity and magnetism by emphasizing on applications associated to industrial processes and everyday experiences. 
Syllabus:  Electrostatics. Conductors and Currents. Magnetism. Maxwell's Equations. Electromagnetic Waves and Oscillations. 
Teaching and learning methods: 

Intended learning outcomes:  The theories and their applications illustrated in this module should expose students to the required foundational knowledge in Electromagnetism required for higher education in the department.

Prerequisite:  General Physics 1 (Practical) , 
Overview:  The failure of the classical mechanics in explaining waveparticle duality, black body radiation, photoelectric effect and the motion of high velocity objects approaching the speed of light led to modern physics (Special relativity and Quantum mechanics). Special relativity describes the motion of object whose velocity is approaching the speed of light while Quantum mechanics describe the motion and interaction of very small particles. The course acquaints the student with concepts and application of Special relativity and Quantum physics in industrial processes and everyday life. 
Aims:  The aim of this module is to aid students in understanding the theories and basic concepts of Special relativity and the failures of Newtonian mechanics, hence, the need for Quantum mechanics to understand particles behavior. 
Syllabus:  Special Relativity. Experimental Basis of Quantum Theory. WaveParticle Duality, Probability and Uncertainty. Atomic Model. Energy Level. Schrodinger Wave Equation 
Teaching and learning methods: 

Intended learning outcomes:  The theories and their applications illustrated in this module should expose students to the required foundational knowledge in special relativity and modern physics required for higher education in the department.
