Novel Experiments in Physics. A Selection of Laboratory Notes Now Used in Colleges and Universities.
American Association of Physics Teachers, Washington, DC.; American Inst. of Physics, New York, NY.
The present volume was compiled by the AAPT Committee on Apparatus for Educational Institutions and by the AAPT-AIP Center for Education Apparatus in Physics to assist physics departments in the never-ending task of keeping their undergraduate laboratories up to date. The purpose of the book is to put before physics teachers for their consideration new experiments or interesting ways of doing well-known experiments. It contains reprints of experiment notes in physics. The experiments were selected by members of the Apparatus Committee from laboratory manuals and sets of laboratory notes submitted by over one hundred and thirty colleges and universities in the United States. Eighty-one experiments are included from the various areas of experimental physics usually treated as a part of an undergraduate major in physics. No attempt has been made to separate experiments designed for advanced laboratories from those usually performed as a part of elementary courses. (Author/TS)
