iii Order and Safety of Laboratory The order and cleanliness of the laboratory are very important to the department. At the conclusion of the laboratory period, everything must be left in the same condition and order in which it was found. This means that all instruments will be put in their proper storage locations, all equipment must be cleaned and secured, all chairs/stools must be returned to their places and aligned and all trash must be thrown away. Permission from the instructor must be asked before anyone leaves the room. The presence of the students during the lab sessions is deemed to be necessary. Absence without a valid and properly documented reason will be noted and will affect negatively the final grading decisions. No eating and/or drinking is allowed in the laboratory. Safety is very important. For this reason personnel will report equipment malfunctions and observed safety hazards to the instructor immediately. The students are expected to conduct themselves in a professional and responsible manner. Absolutely no horseplay or other frivolous activity will be tolerated in the laboratory. Any student or student group found not in compliance with these rules is subject to being expelled from the lab upon discovery of the infraction. Any such student will receive no credit for the report corresponding to that day’s experiment. Any student or student group found damaging laboratory equipment (as a result of carelessness or otherwise) is expected to compensate the department.

iv Structure of Lab Sessions Each experiment will be carried out during a three-hour lab session covering three levels of activity. 1. Technical briefing of students by the instructor. During the technical briefing, you will review the experimental objectives and the basic background information regarding the experiment provided in the experimental handouts. The instructor will briefly go through the fundamental physical and mathematical concepts pertinent to the
