Physics Lab Experiments and Correlated Computer Aids. Teacher Edition.
Gottlieb, Herbert H.
Forty-nine physics experiments are included in the teacher's edition of this laboratory manual. Suggestions are given in margins for preparing apparatus, organizing students, and anticipating difficulties likely to be encountered. Sample data, graphs, calculations, and sample answers to leading questions are also given for each experiment. It is suggested that data obtained be verified with microcomputers. Subjects of experiments include among others measuring with precision; vector addition of forces; torques; resolution of a force into components; forces caused by weights on an incline, timer calibration; recording motion with strobe photographs; straight-line motion at constant speed; constant acceleration using a water clock; acceleration of a spinning disc; acceleration using a linear air track; pendulum; acceleration of free fall; mass/weight; Newton's second law; trajectories; Newton's third law; conservation of energy in a pendulum; energy changes on a tilted air track; simple harmonic motion of a linear air tract; oscillating mass hanging from a spring; mechanical resonance; Boyle's law; calibrating a mercury thermometer; linear expansion of a solid; calorimetry; change of state; waves on a coiled spring and in a ripple tank; reflection/refraction; diffraction/interface; images and converging/diverging lenses; standing waves; electric fields and electron charge; Ohm's Law; series/parallel circuits; magnetic fields; electron beam deflection; and half-life.
