NOL A BLAppI can use a lab apparatus with appropriate technique to make measurements accurately and precisely.
6
NOLDataI can properly obtain, reduce, and analyze data, and I can calculate and use the uncertainties associated with measurements to remark on the validity of my results.
7
NOLNoteI can keep and maintain a laboratory notebook using appropriate record keeping techniques in science.
8
NOLRFormI can write a lab report in LaTeX following the structure and guidelines presented to me by my lab instructor.
9
NOLRClarityI can write clear and concise text in a lab report that describes an experiment, measurements, and conclusions
10
NOLRDataI can use tables, plots, and other figures in a lab report to present data and results in a clear, effective, and aesthetically pleasing way.
11
NOLFermiI can solve mathematical problems (e.g., "Fermi" problems) in my head and on paper without the use of a calculator (to within an order of magnitude of the correct answer).
12
NOR E L A T I V I T YR1RelI can state the Principle of Relativity and can apply it to non-relativistic motion
13
NOR1,R2SRI can provide evidence for Special Relativity and can apply SR to relativistic motion
14
NOR2,R3,R4TimeI can measure or calculate position, coordinate time, proper time, and spacetime interval, and I know what quantities are invariant.
15
NOR5LTI can calculate (and compare) spacetime coordinates of an event for observers in different inertial frames.
16
NOR6LCI can calculate (and compare) length measurements for observers in different inertial frames.
17
NOR7VI can calculate (and compare) velocity measurements for observers in different inertial frames.
18
NOR7CausalityI can determine whether two events are causally related.
19
NOR8,R94MomI can calculate mass, momentum, energy, and 4-momentum for a particle, and I know which quantities are invariant and which quantities are conserved.
20
NOR9ConsI can apply conservation of 4-momentum to a system.
21
NOQ U A N T U MQ1,Q2WSI can describe the modes of a standing wave (whether transverse or longitudinal) whether it is fixed at both ends or free and fixed at each end.
22
NOQ3WII can use path difference to predict the interference of two sources of waves at a location.
23
NOQ4,Q5WPI can provide evidence for wave-particle duality and can apply a particle model or a wave model to a quanton, depending on the experiment.
24
NOQAMQI can use the mathematics needed to describe the state of a quanton, including complex algebra, the inner product of two complex vectors, probability, and normalization.
25
NOQ6, Q7, Q9QrulesI can recite and apply the "rules of the game" of quantum mechanics.
26
NOQ10, Q11QenergyI can derive energy eigenvalues for various systems and can relate energy eigenvalues to a spectrum of photons emitted or absorbed.
27
NOQ12TISEDerI can derive the time-independent Schroedinger Equation (TISE)
28
NONot in bookTISEI can demonstrate that a given wavefunction is consistent with the TISE, and I can solve the TISE for very simple potential functions.
29
NOQ12QpsiI can sketch qualitatively accurate wavefunctions in the presence of various given potential functions.
30
NON U C L E A RQ13, Q14NucleiI can use simple principles to estimate the sizes of nuclei and calculate their binding energies.
31
NOQ14DecayI can describe the main types of radioactive decay and calculate decay rates.
32
NOA S T R OH1GRI can state the the Principle of Equivalence and can use it to make predictions concerning the behavior of light and other objects in gravitational wells. I can derive the Schwarzschild radius of an object from first principles. I can calculate the gravitational redshift and time dilation expected for objects in gravitational wells.
33
NOH2DMI can derive equations for the rotation curves of simple galaxies and justify the existence of dark matter using observations from the literature.
34
NOH3COSI understand Hubble's law and can derive the critical density of the universe using simple Newtonian assumptions. I can discuss how the true density compares to this value and what this implies concerning the structure and future of our universe.
35
NOH4DEI can use arguments from first principles and observations in the literature to justify the existence of dark energy.
