Phys 2303.001

Physics III: Physics of Matter

Session: Spring 2015 (1/20-5/08)
Instructor: Vuk Mandic (e-mail: mandic @ physics.umn.edu)
Time: 1010 MTWF
Location: Phys 131

This is the third and final semester of an introductory course in physics for students in sciences and engineering which began with Physics 1301W/1302W. Physics 2303 is a broad survey of physics topics which have been important in the 20th and early 21st century. The topics include thermodynamics, mechanical and electromagnetic waves, optics, nuclear physics, quantum theory, and applications of the quantum nature of solids. This course is taken primarily by MatSci, EE, and other students who plan to take only 3 semesters of physics. Physics majors and students wanting 4 semesters of physics or an emphasis on special relativity should take Phys 2503 instead.
