SET 1

 

  1. Make a list of what you consider to be the fundamental aspects of classical theory or quasi-classical theory.

 

Consider what you learned in your introductory courses and try to identify what one would call the fundamental rules that govern physics. If you feel comfortable including relativity, either general or special and any aspects of quantum mechanics of which you are familiar then go ahead.

 

  1. Make a list of any problems that are included in your theory by your assumptions.

 

Here are some examples:

Einstein considered the speed of light to be a problem in classical mechanics.

Newton as well an many other physicists saw action at a distance as a flaw and potential problem with Newtonian gravity,

Early quantum theories seemed to provide results for some calculations which was indeed a cause for concern.
