In this module, students will be expected to investigate experimental topics in greater detail than in the preceding module PH25010. Students will be presented with topics for investigation and will be expected to devise and undertake a short experimental study supported by theoretical input where suitable. Students will also be taught the basics of FORTRAN computer programming.
Module objectives / Learning outcomes
After taking this module students should:
Additional learning activities
To accommodate the range of previous programming experience found amongst students, progression in FORTRAN is by means of a structured sequence of tasks and assignments, which students complete at their own pace.
Students will be required to undertake practical experiments on a range of topics.
Introduction to the basic elements of the FORTRAN programming language
A small library of appropriate books is kept in the Part 2 Laboratory..
