Part of the series Practical Experiments in Physics.
Practical work has a definitive place in any Physics course. Performing an experiment and seeing a law of physics unfold in front of your eyes can have a profound impact on both students and teachers. Practical Experiments in Physics presents a range of Physics experiments in a self-contained format that senior physics students will find easy to follow. A logical layout inspires maximum use of experimental time with a clearly defined and achievable aim or purpose to each experiment. To assist with planning, a list includes the basic equipment necessary for each experiment but also allows for flexibility. The growing use of calculator and computer-based data-logging equipment means traditional equipment can be supplemented by new technology. A step-by-step method follows, allowing students to set up the equipment and rapidly begin collecting results. Practical Experiments in Physics presents experiments in a self-contained format with step-by-step instructions, diagrams and suggestions to the teacher, to ensure the experiment runs smoothly. Answers and expected results have been provided where appropriate.
