PHY1260 Physics II Lab

This lab class supports topics and concepts covered in the Physics II (PHY1250) lecture class. Students will complete hands-on experiments that will help them verify physical principles like pendulums, simple harmonic motion, sound waves, the speed of sound, the polarization of light, Ohm's law, series and parallel circuits, capacitance, magnetic fields, and electric energy. Students are required to completely document each lab and keep a comprehensive notebook consisting of all data and reports. In these reports students will be required to show how the data supports each concept covered in each lab. Students are required to sign up for both the lecture class and this lab class during the same semester.




PHY1250 must be taken concurrently.
