Chemistry 1A, Fall 2012. This course covers the stoichiometry of chemical reactions, quantum mechanical description of atoms, the elements and periodic table, chemical bonding, real and ideal gases, thermochemistry, introduction to thermodynamics and equilibrium, acid-base and solubility equilibria, introduction to oxidation-reduction reactions, introduction to chemical kinetics.
Chemistry 3B, Fall 2012. This course covers conjugation, aromatic chemistry, carbonyl compounds, carbohydrates, amines, carboxylic acids, amino acids, peptides, proteins, and nucleic acid chemistry. Ultraviolet spectroscopy and mass spectrometry will be introduced.
Letters and Science C70V / Physics C10: Descriptive Introduction to Physics, Fall 2012. This course covers the most interesting and important topics in physics, stressing conceptual understanding rather than math, with applications to current events. Topics covered may vary and may include energy and conservation, radioactivity, nuclear physics, the Theory of Relativity, lasers, explosions, earthquakes, superconductors, and quantum physics.
Letters and Science C70Y / Earth and Planetary Science C20: Introduction to earthquakes, their causes and effects, Fall 2012. General discussion of basic principles and methods of seismology and geological tectonics, distribution of earthquakes in space and time, effects of earthquakes, and earthquake hazard and risk, with particular emphasis on the situation in California.
Physics for Future Presidents Spring, 2006. The title is serious. The official designation is Physics 10 and is sometimes called qualitative physics -- but this is not trivial physics. You will be learning material that is generally not learned by the physicist until after earning a Ph.D. After every lecture, you should come away with the feeling that what was just covered is important for every world leader to know. Topics covered may vary and may include energy and conservation, radioactivity, nuclear physics, the Theory of Relativity, lasers, explosions, earthquakes, superconductors, and quantum physics.
Physics H7C, 001: Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Fall 2012. This course covers honors sequence corresponding to 7A-7B-7C, but with a greater emphasis on theory as opposed to problem solving. Recommended for those students who have had advanced Physics on the high school level and who are intending to declare a major in physics.
Astronomy 210/ Electrical Engineering 213: Soft X-Rays and Extreme Ultraviolet Radiation, Spring 2005. These UCB Course videos examine Soft X-Rays and Extreme Ultraviolet Radiation.
