This is a continuation of Fundamentals of Physics, I (PHYS 200), the introductory course on the principles and methods of physics for students who have good preparation in physics and mathematics. The primary goal of this field of research is to recreate in the laboratory a new state of matter, the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), which is predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics (Quantum Chromodynamics) to have existed ten millionths of a second after the Big Bang (origin of the Universe) and may exist in the cores of very dense stars. This Yale College course, taught on campus twice per week for 75 minutes, was recorded for Open Yale Courses in Fall 2006. Vector magnitude and direction are also explained.
