Extra Credit 1

There are various ways to put the laws of quantum mechanics into mathematical form.  One such form is a wave equation.  Another way is presented by Richard P. Feynman in the book "QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter ".   In chapter 1 of this book Feynman looks at the partial reflection of light from surfaces.

Read Chapter 1 of "QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter" by Richard P. Feynman (Princeton University Press, 1985).  You can listen to Richard Feynman delivering the actual lectures at http://www.vega.org.uk/video/subseries/8.
