This is the course page for City College Course PHYS 471, Advanced Physics Lab II, in the SPRING 2022 semester
The course syllabus is here: Syllabus
In this course, you will get to perform some classic physics experiments that helped usher in the physics of the 20'th century. The semester will be divided into three general sections: Electrons, Optics, and the Quantum. Each section has two experiments that you and a partner will do together, and then submit individual reports. (That means you will have the same data, but you should have different words & figures. )
Some preliminaries to get up to speed with coding/data.
Use the link below to go to the schedule. When you and your partner have agreed upon a time, make a comment on the page. I will add you to the time slot you have indicated.
The Chief College Laboratory Technician that will be part of this class is Robert (Bob) Suhoke. He knows these experiments very well and will help during your lab times.
Please use this overleaf template to prepare reports: Latex Template
Your reports should be nice pdfs (like this) with images and plots in them (not as separate files or link). For some, you will need to link to external
The schedule is subject to change, but this represents the most likely dates for those items.
