Course Description
Credit Points: 1
Pre-requisite: None
Co-requisites: PHYS 1114 OR PHYS 1154 OR PHYS 1314
Synopsis:
A laboratory course to accompany PHYS 1114/1154. Experiments in static and current electricity and
magnetism, and optics are chosen to illustrate the experimental foundations of physics presented in the
lecture courses.
Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO)
On successful completion of this course, students are expected to be able to:
(1)
Conduct experimental investigations of simple electric, magnetic and optical phenomena.
(2)
Carry out measurements utilizing appropriate techniques and safety practices.
(3)
Practice record keeping of experimental work and data graphing.
(4)
Analyze data using simple statistics and compare the results with the relevant theory.
(5)
Write a lab report including a summary explaining the theoretical background and major
experimental achievements and findings.
(6)
Work and coordinate effectively in a group to accomplish laboratory-based tasks and
projects.
