PHY 402 - Great Experiments in Modern Physics II

Three Credits
Not Offered 2015-2016

Available experiments include: Cavendish experiment for the gravitational constant, Young’s two-slit interference experiment, Fizeau’s rotating mirror experiment for the speed of light, Maxwell’s speed of light via electrical measurements, Thomson’s experiment for the electron charge/mass ratio, Millikan’s experiment for the electron charge, Einstein-Perrin’s for Boltzmann’s constant, Planck’s constant via photoelectric effect, Planck’s constant via hydrogen spectrum, Rutherford’s experiment for nuclear size, Frank-Hertz experiment on inelastic electron-atom collisions. PHY 401  may be elected without PHY 402; however, to complete all of the experiments students will need both semesters. See Program Director.

Prerequisite(s): PHY 121 -PHY 122 , and PHY 221 .
