Experimental laboratory II to illustrate physical principles described in lectures, and to develop skills of measurement and use of common instrumentation.
A further range of experiments is available which will allow the development of data taking, analysis and deductive reasoning skills.
Familiarisation with different instruments and techniques will occur through the varied range of experiments.
