PHYSICS 136 is a two-hour weekly laboratory designed to accompany PHYSICS 135. This lab introduces students to experimental methods in science. Students make observations, analyze their data and compare their results to predictions based on theory. The course material is focused on understanding the principles of classical mechanics.

Course Requirements:

Students are graded on in-class performance and laboratory reports submitted at the end of each lab period. Students are expected to complete 11 experiments in this course during the Fall term and 12 experiments during the Winter term.

Intended Audience:

This laboratory is intended for students interested in the life sciences and who are taking the PHYSICS 135/235 course sequence.

Class Format:

Two hours a week in a laboratory classroom. There are ten stations in the classroom, and students work in groups of two.
