Week 23 Schedule, Reading, and Problem Sets

 

Subject/Reading Assignment Notes
CM: 8.5-8.7 CM PS#12: 8.15, 8.18, 8.20, 8.28, 8.29, 8.30, 8.32
  •  8.29 seems unphysical,and perhaps in the given context it is. However, radioactive decay can (for example) result in the sudden loss of one charge particle (proton) from a nucleus, which amounts (classically) to the same problem.
EM: 7.3

EM PS#12: 7.29, 7.47; 7.34, 7.35, 7.36, 7.44, 7.49, 7.50.

  •  7.44, 7.50 removed from problem set

QM: 9.1-9.6; 9.10

QM PS#11: 9.2, 9.3, 9.4, 9.5, 9.10, 9.13, 9.14, 9.23
  • 9.5 offers a connection to CM Ch. 8 material
  • 9.13 offers a review opportunity for ch. 3 material
  • 9.23 refers to the approach outlined in section 9.9 but I think you can use the hints while following the approach of section 9.6.
