Unformatted text preview: Study Guide for Final Exam Physics 5, Fall 2008, Polchinski Congratulations on being one final exam away from finishing the Physics 1-5 se- quence, and going through the whole 1704 pages of Young and Freedman! I hope that you feel a sense of accomplishment. The final exam will have a form similar to the midterm. It will cover the material from the whole semester. It is likely that I will refine this study guide. Check back at the course website http://www.physics.ucsb.edu/%7Ephys5/ after the weekend (if there is an update there will be a note to this effect). I have tried to use the demonstrations to motivate and derive as much as possible of the new phenomena from modern physics. They are shown and described at http://www.physics.ucsb.edu/%7Electuredemonstrations/Randyindex.html. For each you should understand the main physics lesson, and the key of the details of the demo: 84.06, 84.09, 84.15 Laser Beam Diffracted by Single and Double Slits, Razor Blade, Etched Ruler 88.09 Photoelectric Effect 88.21 Fluorescence 88.15 Spectra 88.12 Electron Diffraction 68.48 Torque on Current-carrying Loop (why did I use this?) 88.30 Radioactive Sources and Geiger Counter You should also understand the main physics lesson of each lab, and the key details: Diffraction/Interference, Oct. 6 Photoelectric Effect, Oct. 13 Hydrogen Spectrum, Oct. 27 Nuclear Decay, Nov. 3 Franck-Hertz, Nov. 24 Here are the key points to understand in each chapter. I have assembled these largely by going back through the detailed homework and midterm solutions posted at http://www.physics.ucsb.edu/%7Ephys5/ . I suggest that you go through those solu- tions as well....
