Thursday, 4-30-09:
  • In Class:
    • Turn in HW & Take-Home Test
    • Read sections from Mullins packet on Energy of Photons and de Broglie wavelengths.
    • Read book sections 27.1 & 27.6
  • Do PS 27.1
    • #4,5,7,34,35,36

Friday, 5-01-09:
  • In Class:
    • Rvw HW
    • Begin Photoelectric effect.
  • HomeWork
    • Read 27.2 on photoelectric effect. The Mullins packet has this information as well.
    • Do PS 27.1b: #11,13








Tuesday, 4-22-08:
  • In Class:
    • Review test.
  • Homework:
    • Begin Modern Physics.
    • Check BlackBody Radiation Problem. Some folks call it a catastrophey. It is a problem with "Classical" Physics. Some saw the problem with classical physics to be very troubling. It is not a catastrophey in the way that a tornado or earth quake is a catastrophe. It is a catastrophe in the same way as, "I have to write a 12 page paper on the fall of the roman empire using only hard macaroni noodles. How is that possible?!" Is a castrophe. It just doesn't appear possible to write a 12 page paper using only hard macaroni noodles. It also does not appear possible to describe black body radiation using "Classical" physics. These are 2 catastrophes. This blackbody radiation problem is what pushed us towards "Modern" or 20th century physics
    • Read Ch 27, Section 1
    • Do P.S. 27.1:
      • Conceptual Questions #1, 5
      • Problems: 1, 4 - 7
    • Optional: Review the first 2 pages of this packet. It reviews the same material as 27.1

Friday, 4-25-08:

  • Little time, playing single dad this weekend. I'l try to put up some specific sections, but for now, review debroglisection along with some samples. uh oh, kid caught me. gotta run.
Monday, 4-28-08:

Tuesday, 4-29-08:
  • In Class:
    • Discuss:
      • atomic energy levels
      • emission spectra
      • conservation of momentum & compton effect.

  • Homework:
