Student Learning Outcomes

Course Name: Engineering Physics
Course Number: PHYS 4C
Course Objectives:
  • Students will use a laser and single and/or double slit system or diffraction grating and design and execute an experiment to determine the wavelength of a light source.
  • Students will be able to apply the material from the course to real life situations.
  • Students will analyze the hydrogen atom and demonstrate the connection between observed spectral lines and the energy levels in the hydrogen atom.
  • Students will be able to show Einsteins time dilation and length contraction relations starting from appropriate postulates.
  • Students will analyze the hydrogen atom and demonstrate the connection between observed spectral lines and the energy levels in the hydrogen atom
  • Students will successfully experimentally determine the index of refraction of a material experimentally.
  • Students will be able to derive Snell's law
  • Students will be able to apply time dilation and length contraction appropriately in relativistic scenarios.
  • Students will be able to draw quantitatively and qualitatively correct ray diagrams for single and double optical surfaces that they have observed quantitatively in a lab activity.
  • Students will be able to correctly apply the 1D Schrodinger Equation to solve to the energy of a quantum particle experiencing a known potential energy and with a known wavefunction.
