Physics C10 - Descriptive Introduction to Physics

Physics C10: Descriptive Introduction to Physics (Spring 2015, UC Berkeley). Taught by Professor Steven W. Stahler, this course deals with some of interesting and important topics in physics. This course stresses conceptual understanding rather than math, with applications to current events. Topics covered may vary and may include energy and conservation, radioactivity, nuclear physics, the Theory of Relativity, lasers, explosions, earthquakes, superconductors, and quantum physics. Physics and Technology for Future Presidents by Richard A. Muller is used as the textbook for the course.
