These write-ups give an overview of the experiments along with a description of experimental procedures. It is important that you read the   write-up before coming to the lab to attempt the experiments, some of  which can be somewhat difficult.  A thorough reviewing of the write-up   will help considerably and make your time in the lab more productive as  well as more enjoyable. Additional material related to about 50% of the experiments can be  found in individual binders that are located in one of the wall cabinets  in B248.  You may sign one out for the duration of the experiment that  you are doing.  You will also find a small number of the texts by  Melissinos,  "Experiments in Modern Physics," (Academic Press, 1966)  and a few helpful manuals by Preston and Dietz, "The Art of  Experimental  Physics," (J. Wiley and Sons, 1991), which should be on  reserve in the Odegaard Undergraduate Library this Spring quarter. -1-

BASIC REQUIREMENTS: 1. You must purchase a bound notebook to be used as a lab journal. You  should develop a habit of writing down interesting observations as they  occur in an experiment, unless you find it more convenient to type into  your laptop. (However, your lab notebook will never crash).  You must  also purchase 2—3 expandable folders in which to place the lab reports.
