Advanced General Physics 324
Topics Covered : There are five basic topics covered in this
course: classical mechanics and relativity (units CM1-4, W1,R1,R2),
thermodynamics (T1-5), electromagnetism (E1-5, AC), and quantum mechanics
(QM1-5, NP, EP,SS). Most of these units can be taken only after other
prerequisite units have been completed : for example NP, EP, and SS can be
taken only after QM5, which in turn requires QM4, etc. Links to more
information on the units can be found below. To go to the units contained in
any one of these topics click on the topic link below.
