SCOPE
This course provides instruction and experimental experiences designed to exercise the student's knowledge of classical and modern physics and to extend his or her familiarity with equipment and techniques used in a physical science laboratory. Cadets, working in groups, execute and report on experimental projects. The program of instruction includes familiarization with electronics and instrumentation, data analysis, and laboratory procedures and practices. Knowledge and skills acquired in this course are essential for subsequent laboratory work in solid state physics, nuclear physics, and optics.

COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
PH486 EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICS 1973 1 Physics and Nuclear Engineering 3.0 (BS=2.0, ET=1.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course is a program of four experiments designed to exercise the student's knowledge of classical, modern, and quantum physics and to extend his or her familiarity with equipment and techniques used in a physical science laboratory. The cadet, usually working with a partner, selects experiments from a list. Cadets perform the experiments on their own initiative with minimum guidance from the faculty advisor designated for each experiment.
