The Topics We need to learn about: Light and Doppler Shifts Gravity and General Relativity Atomic Physics and Quantum Mechanics Nuclear Physics and Chemistry Temperature and Thermal Equilibrium We won’t spend too long on each, just enough to get back to the big picture… Big Bang, Black Holes No Math Topic: Physics we need 4 Done Doing this today Done

Recap: General Relativity Gravity is not a force like other forces, but rather the weird consequence that spacetime is not flat Spacetime is curved or “warped” by the distribution of mass and energy in it Big Bang, Black Holes No Math Topic: Physics we need 5

General Relativity Let's not underestimate just how profound this observation is... Amazing fact 1) Space and time are no longer two separate things → We are left with 4- dimensional spacetime → Spacetime is dynamic and can change and morph Big Bang, Black Holes No Math Topic: Physics we need 6

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
