Lecture Note

Physics Practical offers a wide range of in-depth experimental investigations into key aspects of Physics. It has been designed in such a way that will develop some manipulative skills in handling some physics apparatus. It is an integral part of physics course, which reinforces some, if not all, the principles, theories and concepts you have learnt in Physics.
However, some experiments are designed to verify known laws while others are designed to obtain empirical relationships between two or more quantities. In every case, accurate and methodological observations are necessary and these should be taken with an intelligent realization of capabilities of the apparatus provided. It is therefore important that the students should possess a proper background for careful observations, precise measurement and theoretical knowledge to use the experimental results to their fullest advantage.
The units of records should be carefully written; otherwise the observations would become meaningless. Graphical presentation of experimental results is usually preferred in Physics because graphs provide the best means of averaging a set of observations and show dependence between quantities clearly.
