Introduction: Transverse waves are waves that occur along a string. A transverse standing wave occurs when there is a good relationship of the frequency, length, and tension of the two waves moving back and forth along the string. Objective: Experime
Introduction: Charged objects make an electric field in the space surrounding them. The field has both and electric field intensity and an electric potential. Objective: In this experiment I found the electric field potential and electric field inten
Introduction: Geometrical optics is commonly referred to as ray-tracing. We try to understand how lenses and mirrors will behave by graphically following the rays of lights through the instrument.
Objective: Experiments 1 and 2: In these experiments
Introduction/Objective: The objective of this experiment is to become familiar with what the oscilloscope does and how it works Method: For both experiments, the apparatus used is the oscilloscope, which consists of the cathode-ray tube as the indica
Introduction: Sound waves are a form of longitudinal wave, which have both a displacement and pressure component. The relationship between displacement and pressure is: the displacement is zero when the pressure is at its maximum and minimum. Objecti
Introduction: An electric current is a flow of charge. As the current flows through a circuit, it goes from a region of high potential to low potential, which is then transformed into different forms of energy. Objective: Experiment 1: In this experi
Introduction: A capacitor stores electric charges. As a capacitor charges, it gains 2/3 of it's initial charge. As it discharges, it loses 2/3 of the maximum charge that the capacitor can hold.
Objective: Experiment 1: Test of Voltmeter The purpose
Introduction: Magnetic fields can be found when electric charges are in motion. It can be established by a permanent magnet or by moving charges. Objective: Experiment 1: In this experiment we observed the magnetic field patterns around a single magn
Introduction: The eye accommodates to distance changes by changing the focal length of the crystalline lens. An eye model can be used to simulate the extreme distances by using two different lenses.
Objective: Experiment 1: The variable-Focal-Length
