Introduction: The purpose of this lab was to determine the magnetic field produced by a current
flowing in the coil of turns and or the radius.
Theory: If the tangent galvanometer is oriented that the magnetic field produced by a current
flowing in its co
Introduction: The purpose of this lab was to make measurements to illustrate the use of Ohms
law and learn about the use of a voltmeter and ammeter.
Theory: Voltage is the amount of energy loaded onto one coulomb of charge. Current is the
amount of energy
Introduction: The purpose of this lab was to conduct electricity to some extent and then use the
information collected to plot lines of equipotential between two electrodes.
Theory: The lines of equipotential will help to determine the direction of flux l
Introduction: The purpose of this exercise is to verify the mirror-lens equation and study the
formation of images by convex lenses and concave mirrors.
Theory: Using a convex spherical mirror, parallel rays will diverge after reflection as though they
Introduction: the purpose of this lab exercise is to use ordinary mirrors, plastic and glass to verify
the laws of reflection and refraction.
Theory: Reflection will take place when light is made to strike the interface between two
materials, not all of t
Introduction: The purpose of this exercise is to verify the relationship between the wave velocity
to the tension and mass of the string and to validate standing waves.
Theory: A string that is vibrating will vibrate in one of its normal modes of oscillat
Introduction: Simple harmonic motion will be demonstrated through a long pendulum to a good
approximation. This exercise will determine how the period depends on the amplitude of the
oscillation, the mass of the bob and the length of a string.
Introduction: the purpose of this lab is to investigate the time behavior of a RC circuit.
Theory: The discharge process of a capacitor through a resistor follows and exponential decay
Experiment: The circuit was connected according to the diagram in
Introduction: The purpose of this exercise is to use a diffraction grating to measure the
wavelength of different line in mercury, hydrogen and helium spectra.
Theory: a point of maximum intensity at one point on the screen when light strikes the screen.
Introduction: The purpose of this exercise is to determine the velocity of sound in air and metal
and to study resonance in air columns.
Theory: Standing wave is supported by a closed tube.
Experiment: A tube filled with water was u
Introduction: The purpose of this experiment was to use example of a mass on a spring to
demonstrate simple harmonic motion.
Theory: Simple Harmonic Motion is periodic and oscillatory. When a force act on an object in
the direction opposite to displacemen
