Physics Laboratory 1200-1FIZL2
Each student learns the basics of the uncertainty calculus and on appointed dates prepares for measurements and executes them.
The experiments relate to the following branches of physics:
—mechanics: harmonic motion (simple pendulum, complex pendulum and torsion pendulum); principles of energy and momentum conservation;
rotational dynamics (rotational inertia of Oberbeck's pendulum, Steiner's law);
— vibrations and waves (standing waves in string);
— electrostatics: distribution of electric potential; capacitor in DC circuit;
— electrodynamics: Ampere's law, Biote-Savart's law, Faraday's law of induction; ferromagnetic and ferroelectric hysteresis, physics od dielectrics;
— DC and AC electric currents: Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's rules, work and power of current, measurements of EMF;
— geometrical and wave optics: refraction index; polarization, diffraction and interference of light, single slit, double slit, multiple slits and difraction grating;
— physics of solids: semiconductors (diode and transistor);
— atomic physics: thermionic emission, external photoelectric effect, emission and absorption spectra.
Main fields of studies for MISMaP
Type of course
Knowledge on basic laws of physics and measurement methods. The skill to analyse the results of the measurements, to apply the basic uncerainty calculus and to present the results in the form of a report.
Based on the knowledge of the uncertainty calculus.
Based on examinations (online and oral) before the start of the measurements and based on the report and final conversation held after the experiment.
Scoring, grading and participation criteria are detailed in the laboratory regulations.
