The Physics Department discourages students from changing midstream
from Physics 140 to Physics 125 or from Physics 240 to Physics
126, so it is important that students choose the first course
of a physics sequence with care. Prospective engineers, physicists, and chemists should elect Physics 140/240 rather than Physics
125/126 because concentration programs in these areas require the Physics 140/240 sequence. In the case of some departmental
concentration programs * (e.g., * biology) or in special
individual circumstances, students can elect or are encouraged
to elect the Physics 125/126 sequence. Some advisors will advise
all students who have had calculus to elect Physics 140/240. Physics
140/240 can be elected by all students who have had calculus, but it should be elected only by students who enjoy solving difficult
problems and who think that they will be good at it.

The twentieth century has been witness to two major revolutions
in man's concepts of space, time, and matter. The first of these
was provided by Einstein's Special and General Theories of Relativity.
The implications of the Special Theory to our understanding of the unity of space and time and of the General Theory to our understanding
of gravity and the evolution of the universe are explored. The
second revolution was provided by quantum mechanics, leading to
a new picture of the basic structure of matter. Topics to be discussed
in this area include the Uncertainty Principle, wave-particle
duality, the forces of nature, and the continuing search for the
fundamental constituents of matter. No mathematical background
beyond the high school level is assumed.

is there in the universe besides stars? Why do we think there
was a big bang? How big is a galaxy and how might they have formed?
This course will provide answers to such questions, stressing * conceptual understanding * and simple calculational problem
solving. The format will be varied and informal. In addition to
regular seminar attendance, students will likely be asked to perform
small experiments and present at least one oral presentation.
Essays and other written work will play a large role in the grade.

Physics 140, 240, and 340 constitute a three-term sequence which
examines concepts in physics fundamental to the physical sciences
and engineering. This introductory sequence uses calculus, and, while it is possible to elect Physics 140 and Mathematics 115
concurrently, some students will find it more helpful to have
started one of the regular mathematics sequences before electing
Physics 140. The introductory sequence is primarily designed to
develop a skill: the skill to solve simple problems by means of
mathematics. Developing this skill requires daily practice and a sense for the meaning of statements and formulas, as well as
awareness of when one understands a statement, proof, or problem
solution and when one does not. Thus one learns to know what one
knows in a disciplined way.

Covers topics from classical mechanics including vectors, motion
in one dimension, circular motion, projectile motion, relative
velocity and acceleration, Newton's laws, particle dynamics, work
and energy, linear momentum, torque, angular momentum of a particle, simple harmonic motion, gravitation, planetary motion, pressure
and density of fluids, and Archimedes' principle. Evaluation is
based on performance on three evening hourly examinations (see * Time Schedule * for dates and times) and a final examination.

*Sections 035 and 036 – Keller Plan. * Certain sections

**410. Energy Systems.
*** Math 216; concentration in physical science or engineering, and senior standing. (4). (Excl). *

Climate change induced by the use of energy worldwide is likely
to have a major impact on public policies, scientific research, relations between industrial and industrializing countries, and technological change. How well established is the science of global
warming? which predictions are relatively solid and which highly
uncertain? What is the potential for extracting energy from sunlight, from the wind, from growing plants, from a revival of nuclear
power? What role can improved efficiency play?

Physics 410 is an analysis of the use of energy by society
and for its environmental consequences (especially climate changes)
and some policy and technology responses that society could make.
This course addresses the need of science concentrators for broad
knowledge of the scientific issues concerning energy and society, including an introduction to the policy issues. Course topics
are: the basic science of energy extraction, including fossil
fuels and the potential of renewable resources; the efficiency
of energy conversion systems and possibilities for improved efficiency;
atmospheric science, especially the role of energy use in climate
change; and finally, present and future public policies and changes
in technology affecting energy efficiency in the manufacturing
and use of automobiles. Life-cycle assessment, the emerging tool
for integrating energy and environmental considerations of manufacture
and disposal with those of product use, will also be studied.
In addition to take-home exercises and examinations, each student
will participate in a major small-group project in life cycle
assessment. Course requirements: long-term project reports, reading, quantitative problems, essay-type final exam. The course is team
taught with faculty from LS&A, SNRE, and Engineering. (Ross)

The natural resource impact of any particular human activity can
usually be drastically reduced – given technological development
and institutional change. (This is true for a variety of resources:
fuels, forests, clean water, clean air...). This course is about the end use of energy and its efficiency – in contrast with a
focus on the supply of energy. Thus we will not find out how to
provide more electricity or how to clean up power plants, but
how we could provide the needed lighting and other services with
much less electricity. The course will examine the use of energy
in the U.S. for transportation, for processing of materials by
industry and for comfortable buildings. There will be a focus
on transportation and the potential for reducing its environmental
impacts, including controlling global warming by reducing the
emission of greenhouse gases associated with energy use. The study
will be done from the perspectives of physics, economics, behavior, social organization and politics. The course will require a paper
on an issue involving a particular end use of energy and a project
on some aspect of energy use in the locality. Prerequisites are
a college-level course in mathematics or economics or physical
science, and SENIOR standing. The course will require establishment
of minimum proficiency in analytical techniques concerning energy.
