PH301 - Physics

The lectures are based on Tipler Mosca.
Weekly homework sheets will be posted here and are supposed to be done within one week, unless otherwise specified. We will check your workings during the workshops and discuss the solutions. Attendence in lectures, workshops, as well as trying to solve the weekly homeworks is mandatory. We will do random checks of attendence and the homework solutions throughout the course. Random 'mini tests' in the workshops will also be held. A PASS for the weekly assignments and mini test is a mandatory component of the course.

Additional course details can be found here.

There will be six written class tests during the weeks 7, 10, 12, 16, 21, and 24!
