        Lecture Details

        For more information about Professor Shankars book based on the lectures from this course, Fundamentals of Physics Mechanics, Relativity, and Thermodynamics, visit httpbit.ly1jFIqNu. Fundamentals of Physics, II (PHYS 201) Youngs double slit experiment shows clearly that light is a wave. (In order to observe the wave behavior of light, the slit size and separation should be comparable or smaller than the wavelength of light.) Interference is described using real and complex numbers (in anticipation of quantum mechanics). Grating and crystal diffraction are analyzed. 0000 - Chapter 1. Revisions to Geometric Optics 0820 - Chapter 2. Youngs double slit experiment 5052 - Chapter 3.
