PHYS 452 - Advanced Physics (WI) Lab

3.00 Cr
A laboratory course intended to introduce the student to the design and operation of apparatus and experiments, technical lab skills such as computer-aided data acquisition, and communication within the discipline of physics. Approximately half of the course will be spent on understanding computer-aided data acquisition, primarily through the use of LabView. The other half of the course will be spent on designing, performing, and interpreting the results of an experiment. The results will be presented in a written and oral format. In order to prepare the student for the written presentation, students will write drafts of various pieces of their final report. Additionally, students will be required to read and report on articles from the American Journal of Physics. Two two-hour laboratories per week.
