NHS Physics is concentrated in Classical Mechanics. My job is to give you a strong foundation in the fundamentals. We don’t do much formal work with quantum, relativity, string theory, etc. It does come up in discussion sometimes. I find these very interesting and representative of the state of Physics in the 20th and 21st centuries.

After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify
me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
now on whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the same
comment. Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service?
Thanks a lot!
Chris– Sorry you are getting flooded. Hmmm . . . not sure how to drop you from my end. Is there a way you could block me?
