We start today with the first midterm!! Now’s your chance to show what you’ve got, do your mental gymnastics, rule the roost, and all of those other good things.
After everyone closes their (blue)books on the first half of the class, we will turn the page over to the second act. Today, the lecture will cover telegraphy and the steam engine. We will work our way into classical and modern physics as we investigate the relationship between science and technology. We often hear that scientific discoveries lead to technological advances that make life easier, but both of these technologies asked new questions leading to advances in electro-magnetics and thermodynamics.
