Here’s what you signed up for in class Thursday:
If you missed class and so didn’t sign up, a reminder that you are responsible to attend 2 MoM talks and 2 PSAM talks. At this point, the following talks could use more familiar faces in the audience:
- MoM: Ada Lovelace and the Victorian Computer, Quantum Analogues, An Exploration of Plasma Speakers, Harmonographs: Visualizations of Harmony. The second Physics of Flight and its Evolution is low, as is The Heat is Rising: Stirling Engines and Hydronics.
- PSAM: Physical Optics
The grading & lab prep assignment is here.
Please LOOK at these (and do as much as you can – especially 3-8, and check in Horowitz & Hill, Ch 1, for the solution to 1, 2) by Thursday; since I am posting late, they will be due next Tue 10AM (the point of having them due is so you look through them for final prep as well).
You can find solutions to the week 28 calculus and physics problem sets at the week 28 calendar page.
A preliminary Week 29 calendar page is available.
Please read this page to find important details about Science Carnival relevant for all students in the program.
