Physics 200: Relativity and Quanta

Assignments and Solutions

Students are encouraged to discuss the assignments with each other, but submitted assignments must be your own work. In other words, you should not be looking at anyone else's assignment when you are writing up your solutions, and similarly, you should not share your completed solution with any of the other students.

Since solutions will be posted shortly after assignments are due, late assignments will not be accepted, however, the lowest assignment score for the term will be dropped.

Note: the links below will become active when the assignments/solutions are available
