We will use the book Fundamentals
of Physics (5th edition) Volume 1 by Halliday, Resnick and Walker.
This is the hardcover edition version. If you buy the softcover
version make sure you have all twentyone chapters.
I will lecture on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:40-10:55 am, in Hoyt Hall. If you have a PostScript viewer, you can view the lecture notes.
You can download a PostScript viewer called Ghostscript for free for both Windows and systems and Macintosh systems. You have to be somewhat computer savvy to download and install them.
The lecture notes are available for reference
at the Physics Library.
You can also download and print them by following these instructions .
You are required to read the lecture notes
and the corresponding chapter of the book before you come to
the lecture. It is not the purpose of the lecture to cover all the
material in the book. Instead it will be a time to understand
how the ideas are linked to each other. You are encouraged to ask questions
at any time during the lecture. Yes, that means you can interrupt me.
No one can get a grade for this course without having done all the labs.
I will have office hours on
Tuesdays 11:00-12:00 (Bausch and Lomb 351). You can send me email at email@example.com .
Come see me especially if you find the course difficult.
