Physics Lab

Physics is one of the most important subjects in all classes. Students must know all the experiments along with theorems, laws, and numerical to understand all the concepts of physics in a detailed way. We have fully equipped lab with well trained staff and teaching faculty.  

  • Physics is an experimental science. The theoretical concepts and relationships introduced in the lecture part of the course describe the general nature and behaviour of real phenomena. They were, appropriately, discovered by (or inducted from) careful observation and thoughtful analysis of actual experiments. Genuine understanding entails being able to relate the abstract ideas to the particular facts to which they correspond.

  • The premise of the scientific method is that (observation of) nature is the ultimate judge of the truth of any physical theory. Indeed, experiments designed to prove certain ideas have often ended up showing them to be wrong. Consequently, all physical concepts must be verified experimentally if they are to be accepted as representing laws of nature. Accordingly, the introductory physics laboratories have the following purposes and goals:

    • To provide an experimental foundation for the theoretical concepts introduced in the lectures. It is important that students have an opportunity to verify some of the ideas for themselves.

    • To familiarize students with experimental apparatus, the scientific method, and methods of data analysis so that they will have some idea of the inductive process by which the ideas were originated. To teach how to make careful experimental observations and how to think about and draw conclusions from such data.

    • To introduce the methods used for estimating and dealing with experimental uncertainties, including simple ideas in probability theory and the distinctions between random (statistical) and systematic “errors.” This is essential in understanding what valid conclusions can be deduced from experimental data and that, properly obtained, these conclusions are valid, notwithstanding the uncertainty of the data.

    • To learn how to write a technical report which communicates scientific information in a clear and concise manner.
    • To introduce new concepts and techniques which have a wide application in experimental science, but have not been introduced in the standard courses. These may require that the student consult additional textbooks. In physics class, lab is central, Integral and Sacred. More than a mere place in the back of the classroom, the laboratory is the place where physics students do physics. It is in the laboratory that physics students learn to practice the activities of scientists – asking questions, performing procedures, collecting data, analysing data, answering questions, and thinking of new questions to explore.
