Have a good summer! The finals and other (lots of other) material from Physics 25 (and earlier courses) is available during working hours from Debbie Ceder in 5014 Broida.
Practice Final, and its solutions.
Problem Set 10 had a few typos... Here is the corrected copy, with updates in red.
A summary of what to expect on the final. Remember, the Final is Wednesday, June 11 at 8:00am in 1640 Broida. Wing will have extra office hours on Tuesday, June 10 12 noon- 1:30pm. Prof. Nelson will have extra office hours 2-4pm on Tuesday, June 10.
The lecture meets MWF 9:00-9:50am in Broida 1640, and the one discussion session meets Friday 11:00-11:50am in HSSB 1173.
Prof. Nelson's office hours will be Friday, 2:30-4:30pm in either the Physics Study Room, which is Broida 1019, or his office 5103 Broida, depending on the number of students. The TA, Wing To, has office hours in the Physics Study Room, here are the PLC Office Hours.
The initial text for the course is Electricity and Magnetism, 2nd Edition, by Purcell. We plan to cover Chapters 7-10 of Purcell. After that, we'll use scanned or xeroxed sections from the third and fourth volumes of the Berkeley Physics Course.
I've scanned the segment of the third volume of the Berkeley Physics Course, a very unusual text by Frank S. Crawford, that we'll be using:
I've scanned the text we will use for atomic physics, nuclear physics, and quantum, Modern Physics and Quantum Mechanics by Elmer E. Anderson. Definitely download this page on natural units from this text.
Problem sets will be assigned Mondays, and due the following Monday in class, except for the 1 week where there is a Monday holiday (May 26), in which case the problems will be due on Wednesday. It is fine to work together to find solutions to problems, but each student must write up their work independently. Due to extreme troubles with late homework last quarter, late homework will not be accepted after the Friday of the week the homework was originally due.
The plans for grading are: Problem sets, 20% (1-4), 30% (5-10); Final 50%.
Students should also enroll in 5L or 13CH.
