This module builds on the introduction to experimental physics given in module PH05010. Emphasis continues on the training of students to use basic instruments, the application of error analysis techniques presented in the earlier module and the critical assessment of results in order to draw reliable conclusions. The skills are developed in the context of experiments that support topics covered in lecture courses.
After taking this module students should be able to:
Additional learning activities
As for PH05010
The module comprises a set of experiments from different areas of Physics including Mechanics, Oscillations and Waves and Electricity and Magnetism, which students carry out in rotation during the course of the semester. For presentation of the work each student is expected to keep a Laboratory Diary noting the detailed progress of each experiment and also present formal written reports on specified experiments.
