Crosslisted: Environmental & Urban Studies A laboratorybased physics class designed to
introduce nonscience majors to the different types of energy (mechanical,
thermal, electromagnetic, chemical, nuclear); the methods by which modern
societies produce, transmit, and convert between these types; how different
demand sectors (electricity, heating, transportation) shape our energy
production infrastructure; the promises of future energy technology and the
insurmountable physical constraints on them; and the environmental and economic
costs associated with different types of energy production. The bulk of the
course will be an examination of each of the major contemporary means of energy
production (fossil fuels, nuclear, hydropower) and the emerging alternative
means (wind, solar, biofuels). The course will seek to emphasize some of the
subtleties behind energy production usually glossed over in popular discussion,
and will rely heavily on developing students' abilities to perform
'backoftheenvelope' calculations to estimate quantities of interest on a
global scale. Class size: 16

Introduces
the Hilbert space formalism of quantum mechanics and uses it to examine simple
quantum systems including objects in potential wells, hydrogen atom electronic
states, and the quantum harmonic oscillator.
Additional material includes perturbation theory, quantized angular
momentum, and particle scattering. Prerequisites:
