In this experiment the Latent heat of fusion of water will be found by mixing and melting
method. Using a simple apparatus to measure the minimum temperature when melting Ice in water. The
specific heat of a materialis the amount of energy needed
This lab measures the specific heat of metals by a mixture method using calorimetry.
Calorimeter with stirrer, boiler, bunsen burner, balance, flint, thermometer, metal samples,

We have seen that there are solutions of the wave equation which corre-
spond to plane waves, and that any electromagnetic wave can be described as a
superposition of many plane waves. In certain special cases, however, it is more
To investigate Hooke's Law which relates the Force and elongation of a spring by the equation
F = -kx. K is the spring constant which proportionally measures the stiffness of the spring for the
spring's restoring force.
The apparatus use
To observe real images formed by different lenses and their properties as verified by the lens
Optical bench, lens holders, screen, screen holder, convex lenses(5,10,15cm), desk lamp, halfmeter stick, illuminated object

Archimedes was a Greek born in the city of Syracuse on the island of Sicily in 287 BC. He lived
until approximately 212 BC when he was killed . He was the son of an astronomer and mathematician
named Phidias. Not much more is known a
To study the expansion of metals when heated. And determine their coefficient of expansion for
aluminum, copper, and steel by measuring the change in length of rods.

1. Unknown: f= ?
n= 1 wave hits a pylon of a pier per time stretch
t= 2.7 seconds between the time a wave hits a the pylon.
The frequency of the waves hitting the pylon is the rate at which a wave hit
