Physics 1120, General Physics 2: Electricity, Magnetism, and Optics

Instructors: Victor Gurarie and Steven Pollock

Congratulations on completing this semester of physics 1120! I leave you with this image of the Earth (the dot in the middle) as seen from 3.7 billion miles away by the Voyager 1 spacecraft. It is through electromagnetic radiation that we know the universe, and it is through electromagnetic radiation that the universe knows us, sitting here, on our pale blue dot.

Semester is done!
