PHYS 281 - Intermediate Laboratory


This course focuses on developing experimental skills. These include experiment planning, research, analysis, error propagation, writing, and presenting. A series of short exercises are done first to develop the background in these areas and then experiments are done where these skills must be correctly applied. Typical laboratory experiments will include the Cavendish experiment, index of refraction of a gas with an interferometer, and determining the ellipticity of a large outdoor courtyard.
