On this page you will find notes, worksheets, practicals and useful links relevant to Module 7: The Nature of Light of the Year 12 Stage 6 Physics Course in NSW.

I have completed the notes for this Module. Last update 16/8/21 to add to the notes on Wien's Law & correct the value of Michelson's 1926 determination of the speed of light.  Questions & problems are now being added to this page - August 2021.  Your teacher should be providing you with plenty of those, as well as practical work.

These questions were prepared by the Directorate of Studies, Department of Education, NSW, 1983.  They are excellent exercises on interference, spectra, polarization & Doppler Effect.  Solutions are supplied.
