The main goal of this course is to have you model a broad range of physical phenomena using a small set of powerful fundamental principles. Topics for this semester include types of matter and types of interactions using the momentum principle to predict future motion an atomic model of solids energy conservation including relativistic energy energy in macroscopic systems including thermal energy energy quantization multi particle systems and the point-particle system collisions including relativistic particle collisions angular momentum and quantized angular momentum entropy and temperature Physics 2211: Matter and Interactions Dr. Ed Greco
