PHYS 1110

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2024-2025.

This laboratory course is an introduction to the nature and skills of experimentation in physics. Students will engage in multi-week investigations, creatively design their own experiments, and explore questions of how we develop models in physics through experiments. Students will learn how to design experiments, analyze data, develop interesting research questions, and consider issues of ethics in physics experiments. Students will also develop communication and collaboration skills. The course aims to provide an opportunity for students to consider the nature of measurement and experimentation and evaluate the relationship between physical theories and experimental data.

When Offered Fall, Spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Corequisite: PHYS 1112 or PHYS 1116, or PHYS 2213 or PHYS 2217, or if you have AP, Advanced Standing Exam, or transfer credit without lab credit for these courses. Students who take PHYS 1110 with PHYS 1112 or PHYS 1116 will not need to re-take PHYS 1110 with PHYS 2213 or PHYS 2217 .
