PHYS 471 - Welcome

Overview

The general schematic for 471.

PHYS 37100

  • Mostly to get familiar with some basic electronics
  • Also did some basic plotting and data analysis

PHYS 47100

  • We'll use experiments designed and built by others
  • Allows us to spend more time on the analysis

The Course Structure

  1. There will be 4 or 5 (depending on how scheduling works) primary experiments to do.
  2. You will work in groups of two, but must write and prepare your own reports. (data can be shared between partners)
  3. You will have to sign up for slots to do the experiments (link to calendar on main page)
  4. There will be several smaller scale assignments too. These will be exercises in data analysis primarily.
