PHY 152 - Introductory Physics Lab II, 1 credit hour


Corequisite(s): Except by permission of the instructor, PHY 151  is to be taken concurrently with PHY 131  and PHY 152 to be taken concurrently with PHY 132 . Laboratory to accompany General Physics I and II (PHY 131 , PHY 132 ).
Experiments designed to investigate and reinforce the ideas and concepts developed in General Physics. Employing recent computer technology to gather and graphically analyze data, PHY 151  emphasizes experiments in mechanics (motion, force, energy, etc.) and heat (temperature, heat capacity, latent heat, etc.). PHY 152 first focuses on mechanical oscillations, static electricity, DC circuits, Ohm’s law, frequency-dependent AC circuits, and magnetic effects. Students gain some experience with “bread-boarding” circuits, and the use of modern digital multi-meters and CRT oscilloscopes. The last part of PHY 152 concentrates on the basic properties of light with experiments in reflection, refraction, simple optical systems, and interference.
