This course is intended to introduce students to the fundamental concepts that underline nuclear physics properties, starting with a glimpse into the development of nuclear physics and particulates. This course focuses on phenomena occurring in the nuclear field. Students pursuing this course will be given an insight into the dimensions of a nucleus.
Students will also be able understand the natural processes that allow the dating of living tissue. Students will also be able to analyse production and decay reactions for fundamental particles, applying conservation principles to determine the type of reaction taking place and the possible outcomes.
The students will learn about various types of radiations and their interaction with matter. The course is structured to educate about different forms of nuclear reactions as well as their energy levels.
The goal of this course is to provide wide coverage on Nuclear and Particle Physics by which the students can continue their exploration in nuclear science. After perusing this course, the student will able to study (and understand) any application of nuclear and radiation science you wish to specialize in.
