PH 285 - Lab for PH 284

Credit Hours: 1.0

Laboratory experiments designed to give the student hands-on experience with the PH 284 lecture topics. The laboratory experiments compare the results of the experiments with the predictions of the associated theory as presented in the lecture. This laboratory course is to be taken concurrently with the lecture course PH 284 (Physics for Science & Engineering 3).

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;
  • interpret data and draw intelligent conclusions; and
  • write comprehensive answers to qualitative questions.
