By the end of this unit you should be able to:

• explain the meanings of the emboldened terms and use them appropriately;

• describe the behaviour of wave packets when they encounter potential energy steps, barriers and wells;

• describe how stationary-state solutions of the SchrÃ¶dinger equation can be used to analyse scattering and tunnelling;

• for a range of simple potential energy functions, obtain the solution of the time-independent Sc

Numbers
This unit will help you understand more about real numbers and their properties. It will explain the relationship between real numbers and recurring decimals, explain irrational numbers and discuss inequalities. The unit will help you to use the Triangle Inequality, the Binomial Theorem and the Least Upper Bound Property. First published on Wed, 2

You learned in the previous section that for standing waves to be set up on a string there must be reflection. A travelling wave reaches the end of the string and is reflected. This results in a second travelling wave, which moves back up the string in the opposite direction to the first wave. The two travelling waves interact to produce a standing wave.

Standing waves are set up in an air column enclosed within a tube in a very similar way. Again there must be reflection. In this case,

When a string is bowed, plucked or struck, energy is supplied that starts the string vibrating. The string doesn't just vibrate in one single mode; instead, it vibrates in a combination of several modes simultaneously. The displacement along the string is the superposition of the standing-wave patterns corresponding to those modes. For example, if the string vibrated only in the first and second modes, the displacement at a given instant of time might appear as shown in Author(s): The Open University

Kahneman and Tversky (1979) developed â€˜prospect theoryâ€™ to describe this combination of risk and loss aversion. This suggests that whether an individual is risk seeking or risk averse will depend on where they are in relation to a personal reference point. The reference point divides the area where they feel as if they are in loss from the area where they feel they are in gain. This point is not usually zero, and will change over time. For example, a professional financial trader who is p

A rational-economic perspective generally represents risk as a combination of the expected magnitude of a gain or loss, combined with some probability distribution of anticipated outcomes. Economic ideas of risk behaviour are founded largely on expected utility theory. Expected utility theory predicts that investors will always be risk averse. The shape of the utility curve (utility plotted against increasing wealth) is such that utility increases with wealth, but at a declining rate. This is

Organisations often deal with these social pressures by decoupling responses to these different pressures. The need to appear legitimate in the eyes of important constituencies is met by actions and practices which have a purely ceremonial character: they are done for the sake of appearances and not with any real engagement. The example in Author(s): The Open University

â€˜Environmentâ€™ is one of the more popular words in the management lexicon, most generally understood to be referring to â€˜something outsideâ€™. But common usage today often interprets the Environment (with or without the capital â€˜Eâ€™) as referring to the planetary ecosystem. On that basis the Environment includes such things as global warming, the state of the ozone layer, deforestation and the means of energy generation. Organisations need to coexist with their environment, responding

There is so much information available on the Internet on every topic imaginable. But how do you know if it is any good? And if you find a lot more information than you really need, how do you decide what to keep and who to discard?

In this section we are going to introduce a simple checklist to help you to judge the quality of the information you find. Before we do this, spend a few minutes thinking about what is meant by information quality.

This unit, which contains material from the current Open University second level Politics course DD203 Power, Equality and Dissent, is pitched at the intermediate level. It should take you about 8 hours to study if you attempt the recommended exercises and make summary notes of its key points. Doing so will allow you to practise the crucial academic skill of summary and prÃ©cis â€“ extracting the gist of an argument â€“ which will be of particular help if you go on to study in related

When you have completed your study of this unit, you should be able to:

• understand and use correctly terms introduced in this unit in relation to communication networks;

• understand general principles involved in data exchange between ICT devices;

• work with numbers expressed in scientific notation, and use the Windows calculator to perform calculations on these numbers.

3.3 Stage 2: Gathering the course material together

You will need to gather all your course material and lecture notes together, and organise them properly. Your course material or texts should contain an overview of your course. Keep this to hand, as it will prove invaluable in you come to identify the topics you will need to revise.

There are also other sources of information that you can draw on when gathering information for your revision.
