Physics 181 and 182 Laboratories

Fall 2014 Physics Labs
Please note that all Physics 181 lab & 182 lab students must attend the labs the first week of classes. This semester both the 181 and 182 labs start September 2, 2014. Due to very limited space, students who are absent during the first week will be removed from the courses. Please use the computers on the UL level of the library  if you wish to ensure that Excel 2010 or Excel 2013 on the PC has Data Analysis from the Analysis ToolPak Add-In.

    Important reminder for Fall 2014 Physics 182 students: When downloading your lab handouts and pre-lab assignments please remember that the schedule of experiments has been adjusted. We are doing Experiment #10 (Diffraction and Quantized Transitions) instead of Experiment #9 (Current Balance) on November 4, 5 and 6. Please come to your lab sections on those dates prepared and having completed the pre-lab for Exp #10.
