Friday's class will be given by guest lecturer, Ben Manning. All covered material will be relevant for our second course examination.
This slide includes the equation for Rayleigh scattering intensity and cross-section.
Please go over these notes on your own. The first slides emphasize important logistical information for the course. The remainder review some basic physics concepts about electromagnetic radiation. You will find slides titled "Are You Getting the Concept?" that ask you to do a short calculation to check your understanding. Please do these, and we will go over them during the first class meeting on Wednesday. If you need more information on any of these topics, most slides include references to text books that are listed fully at the beginning of the notes.
