George A. Huttlin has been an adjunct member of the PGCC faculty since 1998. From 1975 to 1997 he was a physicist at the Army Research Laboratory and Harry Diamond Laboratories, where he worked in highvoltage pulsed power, highpower microwave generation, and nuclearradiationeffects simulation. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame where he did research on polarization effects in nuclear reactions. A native of Philadelphia, his B.A. is from La Salle University. Besides teaching, his present interests include nonlinear effects, chaos, and quantum mechanics. For fun he writes computer programs to solve geometric puzzles, constructs mechanical puzzles, and performs semiprofessionally as a percussionist with various musical groups. 
Physics 102 is the sequal to Physics 101. The course begins with a review of Physics 101 as we introduce oscillations and waves. Next we encounter electricity, magnetism, and electromagnetic waves. The semester ends with optics, which, in a sense, is the culmination of electromagnetic theory. Specific topics include:


Prerequisites for success in this course include courses in elementary algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and a noncalculus introduction to classical mechanics. Specifically, the student should have a working familiarity with:
