Abstract Title: A Study of the Equations Needed for Solving End-of-Chapter Problems in the E&M Chapters
Abstract: We used the Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics (9th Edition) textbook by Serway and Jewett, solved all the end-of-chapter problems of the Electricity and Magnetism chapters and coded the physics equations as well as math equations and skills that were needed in the solutions. By analyzing the frequency of how equations were used and the correlation between different equations that were used together, we try to show some characteristics of the general textbook problems and how physics concepts might get practiced through those exercises in the E&M chapters.
