Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Upon succesful completion of this course students should be able to:
 Manage with confidence and precision devices and instruments such as Signal
Generators, Lasers, High Tension supplies, Current Voltage and Magnetic field
sensors, Spectrometer, Discharge tubes, Teltron tube.
 Design and conduct experiments in Electricity, Magnetism, Wave and Geometric
Optics, Electron motion in vacuum.
 Analyse experimental data to confirm or reject proposed theoretical relations
between physical quantities.
 Recognize what instrument resolution is,distinguish between systematic and random
errors and carry out elementary error analysis.
 Report findings and evaluate results

Objective:
To present a contemporary and modern view of electromagnetism and optics and to offer
the science oriented student the chance to understand the fundamental principles of these
areas.
Description:
DESCRIPTION - LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS:
Experiment 1:
Investigation of the charging and discharging of a capacitor.
Measurement of capacitance.
Experiment 2:
Demonstration of reflection diffraction and refraction using water
waves, microwaves, light and the polarisation of electromagnetic
waves.
Experiment 3:
Single slit Diffraction and Double slit interference. Effect of the number
of slits on the interference pattern.
Experiment 4:
Diffraction Grating. Use in measuring the wavelength of light and in
studying the emission spectra of gases.
Experiment 5:
Measurement of the specific charge e/m of the electron.
To demonstrate the use of the Lorentz relation in determining the
specific charge of the electron.
Experiment 6:
Measurement of the Resistance of a component. To test
experimentally the formulae for resistances connected in series and
parallel.
Experiment 7:
Reactance of a Capacitor. Reactance of an Inductor. Behavior of
various combinations of L-C-R in AC circuits.
Experiment 8:
Investigation of resonance in a series LCR circuit.
ORGANIZATION OF THE LAB SESSIONS:
The Physics lab accommodates up to 10 students. During the experiments, students are
supervised by their instructor. Depending on the specific experiment carried out, students
will either attend a demonstration by their instructor and participate accordingly
(experiments 1-4), or they will be separated in groups of three to five students (experiments
5-9). In the latter case all groups will perform the same experiment concurrently.
