General Physics II, Physics 114 (Gary Wysin)
Kansas State University, Fall 2002.
These Notes were written for the Fall 2002 edition of Physics 114.
Some items here may not exactly match the Spring 2007 syllabus and course schedule.
Here I've summarized the main topics and formulas. You can choose the
topic you're most interested in and get a quick summary.
Concentrate on the formulas in the red boxes,
and make sure you understand the meanings of the symbols, etc!!
Good Luck on the Final Exam and Thanks for your Attention and Interest!!
