PHY 2013 Engineering Physics III: Thermal/Quan.

This is the third in sequence of engineering physics course using a calculus based approach for students intending to major in physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and related fields of study. The course provides a clear and precise introduction to the theory, experiment, and applications of thermal and quantum physics. Topics include macroscopic description of matter, work, heat, heat engines, ideal gas laws, first and second law of thermodynamics, kinetic theory of gasses, entropy and statistical mechanics, introduction to application of free energy and Boltzmann factor, relativity, the foundations of modern physics quantization, wave functions and uncertainty, quantum mechanics, solid state physics and conduction, nuclear physics, elementary particle physics and interaction. IAI: PHY915A
