Physics 110: EXTRA CREDIT ASSIGNMENT...Due WEDNESDAY, December 13 NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
Write a ten page "book report" on The Character of Physical Law by Richard Feynman. This is a short, non-mathematical book that is entertaining
and incredibly stimulating. I do NOT want you to REVIEW this book. I don't
want to see statements like: " I liked this book because..." or "I think
Feynman really knows his stuff..." . Etc. What I want to see in this essay
is YOU and YOUR IDEAS. What does this book make you think about? What does
the natural universe speak to you about?
This book was a set of oral lectures that Feynman delivered to a non-science oriented audience at Cornell University. He was an exciting person, a winner of the Nobel Prize, and a sometimes bongo and drum player in night clubs around the L.A. scene. (In his spare time, he was professor of physics at Caltech...).
Please note that this deadline is firm and final. Absolutely no papers will be accepted after December 13.
