PHYS3005 Atomic and Nuclear Physics (4 units)
- PHYS2005 Heat and Motion or consent of instructor
- Medium of Instruction:
This course begins by introducing the key concepts of quantum physics including the wave-particle duality, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and the Schrödinger equation. Using the language of quantum physics, students will then explore the structure and properties of atoms and nuclei. This course also introduces the basic concepts of radioactivity and nuclear reactions and lays a foundation for understanding the working principles of nuclear power generation.
