After taking this module students should:
be able to plan and perform an experiment with minimal input from teaching staff, utilising skills developed in previous modules.
A range of experiments, including PC simulations in astrophysics and astronomy, will be undertaken. Emphasis will be place don the maintenance of laboratory diaries and report writing. Students will be expected to use ideas on error analysis presented in the parallel module PH24010.
Students will be required to undertake practical experiments on a range of topics.
A small library of appropriate books is kept in the Part 2 Laboratory.
This module is at CQFW Level 6
