Physics 210 – Introductory Physics II
SUNY Brockport – Spring 2011
Robert F Szalapski, PhD – Adjunct Lecturer

§ 1. Schedule

Class meets in Hartwell 221 each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10:45–11:45 AM, from 24 January through 6 May, 2011 with the following exceptions: 14 – 18 March is a break week. We have 14 weeks of actual class after subtracting breaks. We will need to cover approximately one chapter per week from the textbook, Physics, Fourth Edition with Mastering Physics access by James S. Walker, Pearson, ISBN 9780321541635.

§ 2. Grading

I hope that you will pursue this course with a spirit of exploration and wonder. Grades are required, so we will do the following:

Homework and Quizzes 25%
Exams + Final 50%
Lab 25%

§ 2.1. Homework and Quizzes

Homework will be assigned every week. You may work in groups, but your write-up must be your own. I am new to the on-line component of the book, so we will be discussing that very soon.

§ 2.2. Exams

Exam dates will be announced in advance. If you know of an absence in advance, please inform me and I will attempt to avoid those dates. We will probably have four exams including the final. The final is scheduled for
8:00–10:00 AM on Wednesday, 11 May.

§ 3. Office Hours

I will be using the adjunct office, 114 Smith Hall, where I can be found for one-half hour preceding lecture and one-half hour following. I can generally make more time since I teach a second afternoon class, and I will be on campus most of the day. I will be on campus on Monday, Wednesday and Friday only. (I am on the Geneseo campus the other two days. Sometimes I am at Nazareth College too!)

I can be reached by e-mail at

§ 4. Web Site

Please go to my web site,, and create a (free) account. You may create or ignore the profile as you individually choose. When you have created your account, please send an e-mail to, and I will grant you access to the page Students/Physics 210. This page will be password protected, and it will be a place where you can find course-related materials. For this class I may post some things which are not course specific in the open area accessible to anyone.
