Lab Syllabus Purdue University - Physics 21800 Fall 2011 2 Students who completed Physics 21800 lab in the last two years may claim the previous credit for the lab. The minimum requirement for the credit transfer is to have all experiments completed and have the number of points for the lab equal to at least 75% of the perfect score. To transfer your old lab score go to the lab coordinator with your Purdue ID no later than at the end of the second week of classes. Lab procedures: Before coming to lab, you must answer all prelaboratory questions scheduled for that week. These questions are closely related to the activities and measurements you will do in lab. The prelaboratory questions typically require 30-40 minutes of effort. The prelaboratory questions are your individual work, so everyone is expected to complete them. The prelaboratory questions must be answered on-line
