Lecture DescriptionFor more information about Professor Shankar's book based on the lectures from this course,Â Fundamentals of Physics: Mechanics,Â Relativity, and Thermodynamics, visitÂ http://bit.ly/1jFIqNu.Fundamentals of Physics, II (PHYS 201)The fact that the wave function provides the complete description of a particle's location and momentum is emphasized. Measurement collapses the wave function into a spike located at the measured value. The quantization of momentum for a particle on a ring is deduced.00:00 - Chapter 1.
