Lenses and Optical Instruments
Introduction:
To study the effects of thin and thick lenses and simple optical instruments along with
object image distances, focal lengths and magnifications.
There are 2 types of lenses, divergent and convergent. Divergent
Standing Waves on Strings
Introduction:
To use standing waves to investigate the relation between velocity and the tension within
the string.
To find the wave velocity both frequency and wavelength must be known: v = f. By
knowing the frequency and by usi
Pendulums
Introduction:
To learn about the oscillations of simple and physical pendulums.
A simple pendulum is where there is a point of mass hanging from a support, usually a
string, and swings back and forth in a vertical plane. One complete cycle of a
Latent Heat of Fusion of Water
Introduction:
To determine the latent heat of fusion of water, this means to determine the amount of
heat required to change the stages of water.
If two objects or substances are in contact with each other, they will transfe
Ohms and Kirchhoffs Laws
Introduction:
The objective of the lab is to verify the predictions of Kirchhoffs Rules in single and
multi-loop circuits with resistors connected in series and parallel. In addition, the objective is to
also practice taking measu
Capacitors
Introduction:
The objective is to study the capacitors and to ascertain the theoretical predictions of
capacitors in parallel and series circuits and to measure the time constant and time delay of a RC
circuit.
A capacitor has the ability to st

Mechanical Equivalent of Heat
Introduction:
The purpose of the experiment is to determine the mechanical equivalent of heat. In
addition, it is also to recognize the fixed relationship between mechanical and heat energy.
Heat is transferred from a warmer
