This note explains the following topics:
Relativity, with an emphasis on dynamics, Classical waves, Quantum mechanics,
Applications of quantum mechanics to atomic physics, nuclear physics, particle
physics, solid state physics and statistical physics.
The study of Modern
Physics is the study of the enormous revolution in our view of the physical
universe that began just prior to 1900. Topics covered includes: Galilean
transformations, The Quantum Theory of Light, Special Relativity, Relativity :
Mass, Energy and Momentum.
Bernard Stallo, a
German-born American philosopher of science , developed a positivistic outlook,
especially in the philosophy of physics, in his book 'The Concepts and
Theories of Modern Physics', in which he anticipated to a degree some of the
general ideas later formulated in the theory of relativity and quantum
This note aims to give an introduction to the subject of nuclear
physics. Topics covered includes: Nuclear Sizes and Isotope Shifts, Semi
Empirical Mass Formula, Nuclear stability and radioactive decays, Cross
sections theory and experiment, Radioactive decay theory, Particle
interactions in matter, Particle detectors and Applications of nuclear
This note covers the following topics: Pre-Newtonian
physics, Galileo's observations, Speed, and accleration, Momentum, Newton's
Laws, Law of Gravity, Work and Energy, Potential Energy and Power, EM Waves,
electricity, Relativity of Time and Space, Energy and Relativity, Radioactive
Decay and String Theory.
This note will discuss the purpose of science and
the general framework of the scientific method, which forms the basis of the
adoption and rejection of any theory in science. Topics covered includes:
Motion, Forces and Newton's Laws, Work and Energy, Rotational Motion, Gravity,
Fluids, Heat, Electricity and Magnetism, Light, Special Relativity, Quantum
Theory, Earth and other Planets, Stars, Galaxies, and the Universe.
