major part of the course will be an introduction to the theory of nuclei. The
principal topics will include binding energy, nuclear models and nuclear
reactions. The deuteron will be discussed in detail and the nuclear shell model
will be treated as well as the nuclear optical model.
The Fundamental Interactions, Classification of Elementary Particles
Conservation Laws and Symmetries; Quarks, the standard Model.
course is intended to acquaint the student with the measurable properties of
nuclei and the principles necessary to perform these measurements.
EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES
the end of the course, the students should be able to:
Explain that Nuclear Physics Course consists
of two parts, Physics of nuclei and Introduction to elementary particle
Discuss the essential elementary concepts with
comprehension of the phenomena governing reactor Physics.
Explain the fundamental concepts of radiation
that control nuclear reactions, including fission and fusion that underpin
nuclear science and engineering.
Examine how electricity is generated using
nuclear reactors, through discussions of nuclear reactor types.
