By the end of the module students should be able to:  Describe the Standard Model of particle physics, the quark model of hadrons, and explain how the properties of the forces are related to those of the vector bosons
 Apply conservation laws to particle interactions and perform calculations using relativistic kinematics to evaluate energies, momenta and masses
 Describe nuclear stability and reactions in terms of binding energy and apply selection rules to radioactive decays
 Describe the basic properties of crystalline solids, and how to identify their structure
 Explain vibrations in materials and relate these to physically observable properties, such as the heat capacity and thermal conductivity
 Develop and critique physical models for the heat capacity of solids
 Demonstrate an understanding of the distribution of electrons as a function of electron energy and the FermiDirac distribution function
