Physics 001 Lab Syllabus - Fall 1999

The table below shows the experiment syllabus for Physics 001 in theFall of 1999. By clicking on the title of the experiment in the table below,one can obtain additional notes on the equipment and procedures for theindividual experiment. Appendix E in your labmanual gives an example experiment and three sample reports: one good, onefair, and one poor. The first entry in the table below will link you to boththe experiment notes for that experiment and to grading commentary on each ofthe three sample reports.
