For future tests

Postby Jina Kwon » Thu Oct 10, 2019 12:48 pm

Do we need to know the specific experiments that determined the properties of light because I feel like we didn't go over them in detail during class

I think we just need to have a general understanding of how they work/what concepts were discovered through those experiments. I remember Lavelle saying in class that we won't need to know too many details about the specific experiments. However, he did say it would be important to know which experiments resulted in which theories/equations since we talked about multiple different ones.

I believe a general understanding of the experiments is required as understanding the experiments will help you understand the concepts and the equation, but I don't think that there will be any questions about the experiment method on the midterm.

We should know where to apply the equation and how to use it, but not the specific experiments of history behind it. Tests - based on the first one - are more calculation based rather than history-based.
