Course description and aims

This course conducts elementary experiments related to mechanics, waves, optics, and thermodynamics.

Students confirm physical phenomena through experiments and learn experimental techniques used in physics, measurements using computers, methods of data analyses and specifics of report preparation.

Student learning outcomes

By completing this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand the principles and methods of experiments.
2) Efficiently use experimental apparatus.
3) Analyze experimental data.
4) Prepare clear and concise experimental reports.

Keywords
