Be aware that it’s difficult to answer all the emails that you send (often, some questions don’t make sense or don’t have a simple answer) but we’ll do our best. We will make every effort to post your emails and our answers to them on the class web page for the benefit of the entire class. Text: Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers by John C. Morrison (Academic Press, 2010). The publisher maintains a dedicated web page located at: http://booksite.academicpress.com/Morrison/physics/index.php Lectures: 1:30 - 2:20 p.m. every MWF in PHYS 203. Questions are encouraged before, during or after any lecture. Notecard questions are also encouraged. The purpose of the lectures is to allow a more detailed presentation of the principles and interconnections of the subject material covered in the textbook. It is strongly recommended that each student purchase a dedicated notebook to use for taking notes during the PHYS 342 lectures. Please turn off all cell phones and pagers before entering the class room. Please no texting during class.
