Electromagnetic waves
T. Young (1801) showed that light behaves like a wave - it undergoes interference Mechanical waves - water, sound, vibra

Newton & acceleration Newton's 1st Law: body remains in uniform motion unless acted upon by (net) force Non-uniform means v changes (magnitude or direction) Changing v over time is acceleration (response to force)
a = change of v / t elapsed or v

Probability A Review of some basic concepts
Gary R. Goldstein
Probability is a subject in mathematics that gets covered in high school, usually without much
context. In quantum physics it provides an essential perspective on how the mi
