Notes

  • PHYS 181 may be used in place of PHYS 151 for BS-CSE and BS-EE majors. See the Course Summary and Notes for PHYS 151 for more information.

  • PHYS 181 is designed for Physics and Astronomy majors, so the breadth of topics is slightly reduced (as compared to PHYS 151), and the depth of coverage is increased.
