G485: Fields, Particles and Frontiers of Physics

 

Module 1

 

Module 2: Capacitors

 

Module 2: Nuclear Physics:

Alpha Scattering - Make sure you can describe the results and the conclusions drawn from these results. A simple diagram of the apparatus and the paths of two alpha particles is also a good idea to bank all the marks available in a question.
