Charlie Freeman has been a member of the Geneseo faculty since 1997.
Ph.D. & M.S., Nuclear Physics, University of Rochester
S.B., Physics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Director of SUNY Geneseo 1.7 MV Pelletron accelerator lab with research interests in Inertial Confinement Fusion, plasma diagnostics, and ion beam analytical techniques including Proton Induced X-Ray Emission (PIXE), Rutherford Backscattering Analysis (RBS), and Nuclear Reaction Analysis (NRA). Also interested in studying the physics of baseball.
PHYS 113: General Physics I
An introduction to the concepts and laws of physics with applications to biological systems; course includes mechanics, thermodynamics, wave properties, and sound.
PHYS 114: Physics I Lab
A lab course to complement General Physics I and Analytical Physics I lectures. Experiments in kinematics, projectile motion, Newton's laws, momentum, and energy conservation will be performed.
PHYS 311: Classical Mechanics
The dynamics of a particle subject to various types of forces: forced and damped harmonic oscillations; conservative forces; vector algebra; kinematics in more than one dimension; multiple-particle systems.
