Physics 141 Homepage. Fall 2016.

Professor Frank L. H. Wolfs

There have been visitors to this page since August 11, 2008.

First course of a three-course honors sequence, recommended for prospective departmental concentrators and other science or engineering students with interest in physics and mathematics. Topics studied are similar to those in Physics 121, but are covered in greater depth. The course also puts an emphasis on "modern mechanics" and starts with the theory of relativity instead of Newtonian mechanics. The topics that are covered include the four fundamental interactions, the atomic nature of matter, conservation laws, energy quantization, multi-particle systems, angular momentum, entropy, the kinetic theory of gases, and the efficiency of engines. It is assumed that the students enrolled in this course have taken at least one physics course in high school.

This course meets every Tuesday and Thursday between 9.40 am and 10.55 am in Hoyt Auditorium. See you there!
