PHYSICS 152L: GENERAL PHYSICS II LAB Spring 2019 Instructor: Meeting Time: Office: Room: Gordon 263 Phone: Office Hours: E-mail: SUPPLIES: General Physics II Laboratory Manual (will be provided first day of lab), notebook (a 3- ring binder will be most convenient), notebook paper, pens/pencils. A scientific calculator will be supplied in lab you may use your own, but instructors may not be able to help you with different models! Your textbook may be useful as a reference. DECSCRIPTION: The laboratory is an integral part of your General Physics II class, and is designed to complement your in-class learning about electricity, magnetism, optics and modern physics. Most of the labs are directly related to material that you discuss in class (though you may see it first in the lab!), and give you practical experience in applying the material you cover in class. You do not receive a separate grade for the lab on your transcript the lab grade is counted as 25% of your Phy 152 class grade. GOALS: The student learning goals are: 1) To reinforce material presented in the class by making predictions based on the laws of physics, then doing experiments to test your predictions. In some cases you will do the reverse process and start with experimental observations, then deduce the underlying physics revealed by your results. 2) To perform experiments and interpret the results. You will practice following complex written instructions and learn how to use a variety of lab equipment. You will learn how to set up an experiment, take measurements and analyze your data. In order to attain these goals, you will, among other things: A) Learn to keep a detailed, accurate and complete record of your work: Lab write-ups will give you practice in recording all the details of your experiment and analysis. This skill is vital for scientists, technicians and medical practitioners whose work must be painstakingly documented for professional and legal purposes. This may sound straightforward, but in fact it requires much practice.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
