Objectives and competences

Students perform a selection of simplified physics experiments with elements of modern measurement techniques. The experiments cover a majority of physics disciplines. There are some optional experiments that depend on the availabilty of equipment.

Intended learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding:
Independent experimental work helps the students to strengthen their knowledge and gain practical experience. The students learn how to systematically observe new phenomena, how to approach the measurement and write laboratory records and reports

Application:
Use of modern ekperimental equipment, data aquisition and analysis.

Reflection:
Critically judging the eksperimental results and relating them to theoretical models. Testing the physics laws with everyday experience.

Transferable skills:
Mastering the use of different equipment, data aquisition methods and software. Laboratory skills are a prerequisite for experimental work.

Learning and teaching methods

Introductory lecture, independent work in the laboratory with consultations with the laboratory assistant, analysis of results presented in a form of a report.

Assessment

The assistants asses the quality of the measurement approach and performance
understanding and reporting
grading: 5 (fail), 6-10 (pass) (according to the Statute of UL)
