SCI 134 - Quarks and Atoms, Dark Matter and Black Holes

Credit Hour(s): 2
A non-technical inquiry into the nature of matter and the means by which we have developed our present view of matter. The course begins with a discussion of scientific inquiry and a brief history of chemistry from Democritus to Bohr. The remainder of the course introduces the quantum-mechanical view of matter. Students will consider the behavior of matter at various scales – from the familiar “human” scale where phenomena can be directly perceived by our senses to the quantum and cosmic scales where behavior can only be imagined based on indirect evidence. This course has an additional fee. 2 Credit(s). 5 Contact Hour(s).
