site regularly for news, assignments, access to current lecture notes
and study aids, study hints (useful for exams and quizzes) and links to
Chapter 18 Homework
Has been assigned and is due Monday, September 10. I am at home
but will repost the actual problems here when I get in (in case any
early birds find this before I tell you about it in class).
Extra Credit Project
Don't Forget! Your final grade is promoted by 1/3 of a letter if
you do an extra credit project! Your project selection must be
approved as wimpy projects don't qualify.
- Build a piece of apparatus that uses or illustrates the physics
learned in this course (telescope, Van De Graff generator, generator).
- Write a computer program that simulates or illustrates the physics
learned in this course.
- Write a set of lecture notes for one or more chapters covered. This
must be done using LaTeX with eps figures produced by xfig and must be
accompanied by at least four "interactive problems". If the chapters
you want to cover already have adequate notes prepared, you can do at
least eight interactive problems instead.
- Write a term paper on an important piece of physics learned in the
class and the men and women who developed it. Previous reports have
been on Maxwell and Madame Curie, for example (or, if you prefer, on
Maxwell's Equations and Magnetism).
- This list is not exclusive! If you have something not listed that
you think would be a great (and deserving!) project, see me and we'll
talk it over!
