The main objective of this Physics Lab Manual is to furnish the conceptual understanding of the basic principles. The experiments are selected from various areas of Physics like Optics, Lasers, Fiber Optics, Sound, Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism and Basic Electronics. It is an attempt to link science education with discovery and innovation.
Our general aim in this manual has been to place before the reader a description of a course of experiments which shall not only enable him to obtain a practical acquaintance with methods of measurement, but also as far as possible illustrate the more important principles of physics. This manual is intended for the assistance of Students and Teachers in Physics Laboratories.
We have made no attempt to give anything like a complete list of the experiments that may be performed with the apparatus that is at the present day regarded as the ordinary equipment of a Physical Laboratory. We have selected a few – in our judgment the most typical – experiments in physics, and our aim has been to enable the student to make use of his practical work to obtain a clearer and more real insight into the principles of the subjects. Viva-voice questions are also included in the book. These experiments will help the students to expertise in the analysis of various concepts in Physics.
