This website contains the complete set of lecture notes for Physics 252, the fourth semester of our four-semester Introductory Physics course for physics majors. This course traces in some detail just how the new ideas developed. We examine the experimental and theoretical paradoxes that forced thinking out of the traditional path.

This text developed out of a beginning physics course for students with a strong interest in physics. Starting with waves and relativity, the author develops all of physics in a modern context rather than adding a bit of modern physics at the end.
by Charles W Fay - Ferris State University
Presents the fundamental topics in modern physics to students who have already completed a full year of introductory physics. The concepts of special relativity, quantum physics, atomic and subatomic structure, and solid state physics are presented.
This book is for an introductory undergraduate study of calculus-based physics. It covers the topic of waves first, then the basics of motion, Special Relativity and Quantum Mechanics, Gravity, Electromagnetism, Fluid dynamics, Thermodynamics, etc.

A lot of time in this class will be devoted to physics discovered in he years 1890-1930. In the course of the class, we'll try to really understand the key ideas of quantum mechanics, special relativity, general relativity and cosmology.
