WebLecture: Black Holes

Planetarium Program: Carry out observing projects #58 and #59.

Website of the Week: Explore the Black Hole: Gravity's Relentless Pull -- the introductory animation is only the beginning. The site contains both an interactive animation and an in-depth presentation of topics in encyclopaedia form.

Homework problems:

Go over the list of Key Words and Key Ideas at the end of the chapter. If you don't remember the definition of the key word, review its use (the page number on which it is explained is given).

Read through the Review Questions and be prepared to discuss them in class. If any of them confuses you, ask about it!

Check the Moodle for the entire assignment and the particular problems assigned to you and post your solution for that problem, with explanations.


Moodle Quiz: Take the chapter quiz. Quizzes are generally due by the day after our next session (this gives you two chances to ask questions in class -- use the opportunity!).
