Physics 003 Lab Syllabus - Fall 1999

The table below shows the experiment syllabus for Physics 003 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 experiments. Appendix E of your lab manual contains a sampleexperiment and three sample lab reports: one good, one fair, and one poor. Thefirst entry in the table below provides a link to the experiment notes for thatexperiment and to grading commentary on each of the three sample reports.
