PH 283 - Lab for PH 282

Credit Hours: 1.0

Laboratory experiments designed to correlate with the topics of PH 282 lecture concurrent with classroom instruction. Laboratory experiments including but not limited to: the topics of the use of electrical measuring instruments and their limitations, electric fields, electric potentials, current, resistance, electrical circuits, magnetic fields, inductance, EM oscillations, alternating currents, electromagnetic waves, error analysis, and the use of appropriate software for data analysis. This laboratory course is to be taken concurrently with the lecture course PH 282 (Physics for Science & Engineering 2).

Fulfills SUNY General Education – Natural Sciences.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • explain the experimental procedures involved in the demonstration of some of the fundamental laws of nature;
  • collect experimental data using appropriate procedures;
  • use mathematical techniques to analyze numerical data and calculate experimental errors;
  • organize the collected data in a technical lab report; and
  • interpret data and draw intelligent conclusions.
