PHYS 1070 - Physics 2: Waves and Modern Physics
(Lab Required) At the heart of modern communications, waves and oscillations are key to understanding the world around us from subatomic scales to biology, traffic flow, the stock market, climate change and the cosmos itself. Learn about the mysterious quantum world, the basis of the latest nanotechnology, where particles are waves and waves are particles. Explore Bohr's model of the atom and discover Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. This calculus based course addresses the underlying concepts for all modern science and engineering. This course, like Physics 1 (PHYS 1050), is intended for students considering a program in the physical sciences. Recommended for entry into the Honours programs (with a grade of "B"). May not be held for credit with PHYS 1071, the former PHYS 1410, the former PHYS 1420, or PHYS 2152. Prerequisites: (a grade of "C" or better in PHYS 1050 or PHYS 1051) or (a grade of "B" or better in PHYS 1020 or PHYS 1021) and (a grade of "C" or better in one of MATH 1230, MATH 1500, MATH 1501, MATH 1510, MATH 1520, or the former MATH 1530). Pre- or co-requisite: one of MATH 1232, MATH 1700, MATH 1701, MATH 1690, MATH 1710, or the former MATH 1730.
