Solid State Physics
(Physics 4309-5304)Homework Assignments & Solutions
assignments & solutions. Problems will
assigned & graded on a regular
basis. Some, but not all, of the problems will come from the
book by Kittel &/or the supplemental textbooks. Doing problems is
effective means of learning physics, which is impossible otherwise!!! Homework
is due at 5pm on
the due date. To keep up, do the assignments as soon as the material is
covered. If you
wait too late, you likely will run intotrouble!
homework will be accepted!!
You are strongly
encouraged to form groups to
work on homework & study together!This
is how physicists work in real situations!NO
people who had this
course previously is allowed! NO use
of problem solutions posted in previous years is allowed! This is on
the honor system! It will do
you no good to merely copy old solutions! Copying solutions will NOT
teach you physics! Solutions (.jpg
format) will be
after the due date.
stated, assigned problems are from end of chapter problems in Introduction
to Solid State Physics, by C. Kittel. Chapter numbers refer to chapters in that book. Some
problems may also come from supplemental
material, in which case, the
source of that
material is noted.
