Lab # 4
The purpose of this lab is study the conductivity of certain household items. We will also
look and current in a circuit in relation to the voltage and resistance of that circuit.
Construct a simple continuity-test circuit usin
Lab # 3
The purpose of this lab is study the RC time constant and how the voltage across a
capacitor will change as it charges.
Construct a simple capacitor by combing two sheets of aluminum foil and one sheet of
wax paper. Then connec
Lab # 1
The purpose of this lab is to look at electrostatic force and to perform simple exercises to
observe it at work.
1. Rub an ordinary blown-up balloon with a wool or flannel cloth. Place the balloon on a
wall surface. Explain wha
Lab # 2
The purpose of this lab is to construct a simple circuit and to observe the various circuit
characteristics such as voltage and current drops across a lamp.
Construct a simple circuit using a fixed voltage source with a led lam
Lab # 6
The purpose of this lab is to observe angular momentum, angular velocity and the conservation
of angular momentum.

Lab # 12
The purpose of this lab is to look at the adiabatic process for an ideal gas by using air as
the gas and a bicycle pump to perform the adiabatic compression.

Lab # 10
The purpose of this lab is to determine the length of the E string on the guitar as you play
an F and F # note. We then will do the same experiment using a violin. We will use a
constant wave speed to help determine the length.
