Physics 225

Modern Physics

This course is an introduction to relativity and quantum theory. Special relativity is a popular enough subject that you should be able to find several books on it at your public library. Find one that fits your learning style and give yourself plenty of time to really learn it. If it doesn't seem consistent to you at first, just hang on to your questions and keep reading (or watching the video lectures below). It really does make sense!
