5
YESL A BLApparatusI can use a lab apparatus with appropriate technique to make measurements accurately and precisely.
6
YESLReportI can write a lab report in LaTeX in a style consistent with a journal article that describes the experiment, measurements, and conclusions.
7
YESLJournalI can review a journal article and write a summary of the article that describes the experimental setup, analysis, and conclusions.
8
YESLFermiI 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).
9
YESR E L A T I V I T YR1RelI can state the Principle of Relativity and can apply it to non-relativistic motion
10
YESR1,R2SRI can provide evidence for Special Relativity and can apply SR to relativistic motion
11
YESR2,R3,R4TimeI can measure or calculate position, coordinate time, proper time, and spacetime interval, and I know what quantities are invariant.
12
YESR5LTI can calculate (and compare) spacetime coordinates of an event for observers in different inertial frames.
13
YESR6LCI can calculate (and compare) length measurements for observers in different inertial frames.
14
YESR7VI can calculate (and compare) velocity measurements for observers in different inertial frames.
15
YESR7CausalityI can determine whether two events are causally related.
16
YESR8,R94MomI can calculate mass, momentum, energy, and 4-momentum for a particle, and I know which quantities are invariant and which quantities are conserved.
17
YESR9ConsI can apply conservation of 4-momentum to a system.
18
YESQ 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.
19
YESQ3, Q4WII can use path difference to predict the interference of two sources of waves at a location.
20
YESQ4,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.
21
YESQAMQI 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.
22
YESQ6, Q7, Q9QrulesI can recite and apply the "rules of the game" of quantum mechanics.
23
YESQ10, Q11QenergyI can derive energy eigenvalues for various systems and can relate energy eigenvalues to a spectrum of photons emitted or absorbed.
24
YESQ12TISEDerI can derive the time-independent Schroedinger Equation (TISE)
25
YESNot in bookTISEDerI can demonstrate that a given wavefunction is consistent with the TISE, and I can solve the TISE for very simple potential functions.
26
NOQ12, Q13QpsiI can write a VPython program to calculate Psi numerically for a given value of E and graph Psi(x). I can use this program to find the energy eigenvalues of a system.
27
NON U C L E A RQ12, Q13NucleiI can use simple principles to estimate the sizes of nuclei and calculate their binding energies.
28
NOQ13, Q14DecayI can describe the main types of radioactive decay and calculate decay rates.
29
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.
30
NOH2DMI can derive equations for the rotation curves of simple galaxies and justify the existence of dark matter using observations from the literature.
31
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.
32
NOH4DEI can use arguments from first principles and observations in the literature to justify the existence of dark energy.
