Welcome to this course - A boot camp to Nuclear Physics (NP). This course is for amateurs as well as for those pursuing undergraduate program in Physical Sciences and Medical sciences. This course has video lecture content of 9 hrs 45 min that is divided into 7 sections spread over 48 lectures followed by a Quiz at the end of each section. This course expectedly covers all the traditional topics that are part of the Undergraduate Program in most Universities. Amateurs in Physics and those having love for Physics can quench their thirst for learning by subscribing to this online program. Also students undergoing various academic programs in Physics and Medical Sciences can boost their learning through this course and earn a Udemy certificate.
The subject of Nuclear Physics started with Rutherford's experiment performed in the year 1911 and bloomed as a new branch of Physics that answered a band of questions which will be addressed in the Course:
What is the source of Solar energy?
How long will the Sun radiate heat and light for us?
What is the source of energy in an atom/nuclear bomb?
Why can't we assemble a nucleus in the laboratory?
What are radioactivity mechanisms
How the radiations interact with matter and help us find a range of application in the field of Medical Sciences.
The wide range of applications created huge market for Instrumentations. In this course we shall learn the fundamental part of it.
In this course we shall learn NP through following seven sections:
1. Discovering Nucleus
2. Nuclear Binding Energy
4. Nuclear Models
5. Particle Accelerators
6. Nuclear Radiation & Energy
7. Radiation Detectors
Undergoing this course will enable you to
Calculate the radius of nucleus from experimental data of Rutherford’s experimental data
Understand complicated nature of Nuclear force
Estimate mass defect, binding energy using mass in amu
With Q value estimation of Nuclear Reactions
Learn empirical formula for Nuclear Models
Know the existence of magic numbers in view of atomic models
Construction & Working of Nuclear instrumentations for particle (i) accelerators (ii) detectors
Who this course is for:
- All armatures aspirant to understand Nuclear Physics.
- Students of Junior College and degree college.
