LABS (cont…) “ Fundamental physical science involves observing how the universe functions and trying to find regularities that can be encoded into laws. To test if these are right, we do experiments. We hope that the experiments won't always work out, because it is when our ideas fail that we extend our experience. The art of research is to ask the right questions and discover where your understanding breaks down." Frank Close Lab Starts next week (see website for Schedule) Will be 5 labs total: Once every two weeks Handed in reports and Notebook to your TA in time Prepare Lab Note book before Lab Read “Lab report Template” on Website.
