PHY 196 - Quantum World and Relativity

Three Credits
Fall Semesters

Introduction to the mysteries of quantum physics and relativity for the general student. Despite nearly a century of confirmations, the basic rules of quantum physics and relativity are still strange, mysterious, and counter-intuitive, and fun to think about. This course examines these rules - their discovery, content, and experimental verifications - and the people who created them - Einstein, Bohr, DeBroglie, Heisenberg, etc. You do not need to be a science major to take this course.

Fulfills the Natural Scientific Inquiry requirement.
