PHYS 3375 - Women in Physics and Their Scientific Contributions

3 Credit(s)

Enrollment Requirement: Prerequisite:   ,   or equivalent (Calculus).
Requirement Designation: Diversity & Physical/Life Science Exploration
Components: Lecture

Meets with HONOR 3375. This course will make a survey of the lives and works of important women physicists of the past. We will start with the first woman faculty member in a European university: Laura Bassi (University of Bologna, 1732). Others to be included are Curie, Meitner, Franklin, Wu. The course will attempt to teach, mostly at a conceptual level, the basic physics topics associated with the achievements of these women, and to seek to place their contributions in the larger context of the advent of Modern science and Technology.
