This is the second of the two introductory courses in Physics. It is a calculus based course. The course is examined at two levels, with Higher Physics 1B being the higher of the two levels. While the same content is covered as Physics 1B, Higher Physics 1B features more advanced assessment, including separate tutorial and laboratory groups.Electricity and Magnetism: electrostatics, Gauss's law, electric potential, capacitance and dielectrics, magnetic fields and magnetism, Ampere's and Biot-Savart law, Faraday's law, induction and inductance. Physical Optics: light, interference, diffraction, gratings and spectra, polarization. Introductory quantum theory and the wave nature of matter. Introductory solid state and semiconductor physics: simple energy band picture.
