Laboratories

Labs start the week of January 29, and are held in 4310 Chamberlin. You are not required to keep a lab notebook - but for each lab you need to fill out and hand in at the end of each lab a question sheet made available to you on this page. You are also required to turn in a 'lab writeup' for one of the labs during the semester - lab MC-12b on Simple Harmonic Motion- during the week of April 9. You will need to take more extensive notes when you do this lab. (Details are in the "question sheet" below.)

The labs will in most cases closely follow the Physics 207 lab manual (availablel in the University Bookstore), with the questions sheet as a supplement. In a few of the labs, including the first one, the question sheet contains all of the questions you need to answer.
