PHY 108 – General Practical Physics II

 

 

Learning Outcomes
On completion, the student should be able to:
1. conduct measurements of some physical quantities;
2. make observations of events, collect and tabulate data;
3. identify and evaluate some common experimental errors;
4. plot and analyse graphs;
5. draw conclusions from numerical and graphical analysis of data; and
6. prepare and present practical reports.

Course Contents
This practical course is a continuation of PHY 107 and is intended to be taught during the
second semester of the 100 level to cover the practical aspect of the theoretical courses that
have been covered with emphasis on quantitative measurements, the treatment of
measurement errors, and graphical analysis. However, emphasis should be placed on the basic
physical techniques for observation, measurements, data collection, analysis and deduction.
