Homework Help: Need Modern Physics Formula sheet

  1. Jul 26, 2010 #1
    Hello,

    I am attending the Modern Physics class at my college, and I am struggling to process all of the information the instructor is presenting. Part of that confusion stems from this being a summer course, the other part is from the sheer lack of organization. One second were deriving a formula and the next he says its obsolete, vaguely at that. So I was wondering, if any one here who has had modern physics before, would like to share their formula sheet(I found some on Google but they were not complete). Anything at all would be useful, and would aid in my understanding of the class.

    Thank you.

    Could you post links to the sheets you've found so far, and mention what you think is missing from each? That might help us to help you.

    Sure. Here are the three I found:
    http://uw.physics.wisc.edu/~knutson/phy205/eqnf.pdf-----(Easiest [Broken] to understand)
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/dolinski/318939943/sizes/l/ -------(Has the most info)
    http://faculty.mint.ua.edu/~pleclair/PH253/Exams/Exam_2/formulas.pdf [Broken]

    Right now we're on Schrödinger Eq and are just starting quantum. This is the first time I've taken modern physics so, I don't know if those sheets are accurate or not or what information is missing. What I have noticed is our teacher has given us some equations that were not on those sheets, such as the reflection coefficient for Schrödinger equation for a wave.

    On a side note, I struggled quite a bit with relativity, is there a site that has some sort of tutorials for that topic?

    Have you checked out the "Learning Materials" section of the PF yet?

    https://www.physicsforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=151

    There are a number of good tutorials and materials in there.
