Standing Waves in a String Lab
Purpose: The purpose of this activity is to investigate standing waves in a string. What is the
relationship between tension in the string and the number of segments in the standing wave?
What is the relationship
Lab 6: Ohms Law and Resistors in DC Circuits

In this lab we will confirm that resistors obey Ohms Law and explore how equivalence
resistance changes when resistors are connected in s
Lab 2: Specific Heats of Metals
July 20, 2015
Every substance requires a different amount of heat application to observe a temperature
change. This characteristic is known as specific heat; which
Lab 4: Use of a Multimeter

Many types of analog multi-meter can measure DC current, DC volt, AC current, AC volt as well
as resistance. We will be using a analog multi-meter to measu
LAB 5: The Electric Equivalent of Heat
When a current passes through a resistor, it loses energy because it must do work against
the resistance. This energy shows up as heat in the resistor. One of the basic experiments
in the 19th century was a m
