Lab Handouts

The write-ups for the laboratory will be presented below. As each of the new lab write-ups is revised for this semester, the links below will be made active. The write-ups are Word documents which you should print out yourself before coming to the lab session. When you come to the lab session, it is expected that you understand the experiment to be performed from your reading of the write-up and that you will have reviewed your notes and textbook sections associated with the lab. You should arrive ready to begin work on the lab and not to begin reading the write-up.

Lab Data

During the course of the semester – if there are any experimental difficulties that occur during a lab, we will post data that can be used in your report preparation. Unless data is posted here or specifically provided by your TA, you are expected to use only data that you have gathered in the lab yourself.
