|Grades will be evaluated by reports, midterm exams and final exams.
To pass, you must be able to explain basic properties of nucleus, and perform basic calculations on nuclear energies. If the more difficult problems can be handled, the grade is reflected accordingly.
|It is desirable to understand the contents of Mechanics, Electromagnetics, and Quantum Mechanics.|
