ContentsFile Size: KB. Modern Physics Modern physics: ( - now) 1. Special Relativity: A theory of the behavior of particles moving at high speeds.

It led to a radical revision of our ideas of space, time, and energy. Quantum Mechanics: A theory of submicroscopic world of the atoms. It also require a profound upheaval in our vision of how nature operates. Physical theories (or laws), physicists, etc. are can be* separated into two realms, Classical Physics and Modern Physics.

Typically, classical physics encompasses topics at an atomic level (or larger). These theories (or laws) work at the scale t. The Problems with Classical Physics By the late nineteenth century the laws of physics were based on Mechanics and the law of Gravitation from Newton, Maxwell's equations describing Electricity and Magnetism, and on Statistical Mechanics describing the.

Look it up now!I don't think you're going to find a book that covers both classical E&M and QED in the same book. Funnily enough Griffith has separate books on each, specifically "Introduction to Classical Electrodynamics" and "Introduction to Modern Particle Physics" (he also has one on quantum mechanics (which is different than QED)).Our exploration of the theoretical underpinnings of modern physics begins with classical mechanics, the mathematical physics worked out by Isaac Newton () and later by Joseph Lagrange () and William Rowan Hamilton ().
