A modern introduction to physics for advanced students, this work focuses on the atomic structure of the material plus the links between macroscopic and microscopic phenomena. Above all, readers learn how to explain complex physical processes using simple models. This second volume deals with the theory of electricity and magnetism, as well as physical optics as understood by the classical interaction between light and material. Electrostatics and currents are discussed in a simplified way using the electrical field and microscopic models.The overall goal of this calculus-based text is to provide an introduction to physics with a modern point of view.
