This laboratory course is designed to be taken in conjunction with PHYS116. Students will get hands-on experience with physical systems that demonstrate the principles being studied in PHYS116. Hands-on experience helps in developing physical intuition, a deeper understanding of the course material and the world around us.
The emphasis in this course is on experimental technique and the proper identification, appreciation, and handling of experimental error.
