Important Note. These are my personal lecture notes, that I prepared for my personal use as part of the preparations for teaching this module. I post them here for the sole purpose of assisting the students learning this subject.
I make no claim of originality. I am basing a large part of the text on the book by Michael Mansfield and Colm O’Sullivan , apart from the part on special relativity, which is based on Charle’s Kittel et. al. book, “Berkeley Physics Course- Part I, Mechanics”.
