So I'm an ME student interested in heat and mass transfer who did great in University Physics I last semester. Momentum, Energy, Heat, Inertia, Force, Fluids, Work.. loved it all, did supplemental problems for the fun of it, and tutored several classmates. This semester in University Physics II we're doing circuits, electric fields, magnetic fields, electromagnetic fields, Gaussian surfaces, waves, and optics. I enjoyed the basic circuits and look forward to optics as an interesting way to finish the course but the rest of it is killing me. I'm not getting poor grades but I just can't seem to wrap my head around the conceptual ideas well enough to feel like I've mastered the material. I've realized that I just don't care. I'm sure electromagnetism is great stuff, but I am just completely uninterested. I'm pretty sure I'm still going to get an 'A' in the course but I'm not doing it the right way. This is the first class that I've really just studied to the test and I'm not very happy with the fact that six weeks after a test I scored an 'A' on I can't answer 75% of the questions. How bad is not mastering this material going to come back and bite me as an ME? Anyone have any experienced advice for dealing with burnout? I think mostly I just needed to vent but I'll give a big "thank you" in advance to anyone willing to give me some advice.
