SC 2014 Semilab: Physics: Foundations, Problems, and Mysteries

by Dmitry Kharzeev

In this semilab we will learn to apply the principles of physics to understanding the world around us.

What is light? what is sound? how do we see and hear, and become aware of the reality around us? What is gravity? How does one approach a problem in physics?

We will solve together a number of simple problems that will teach us about the physical world. This experience will hopefully demonstrate to you that physics is intuitive, interesting, and fun!

Prerequisites: students need to know trigonometry.
