Modern Physics, Spring '11

Homework 7 (covering the rest of Townsend Chapter 4)

1. Study for the midterm Friday. It will be cumulative, so take some time to review everything we've done up to this point.

2. Problem 4.30 (Calculate the reflection and transmission coefficients...)

3. Read, if you haven't done so already, the note I wrote (linked to on the main page) about how to think of scattering in terms of wave packets. Comment briefly on the subtle flaws in Townsend's Figure 4.22 on page 139.
