The course is intended for physics majors and also for science and engineering students who desire a more rigorous introduction to experimental science. Experiments are mainly chosen in the general area of AC and DC circuits, electricity and magnetism. Other major components of the course include the construction of an AM radio, analysis of both random and systematic errors, working individually and with a lab partner, and writing clear lab reports.
This course runs through SRISA's external partners at ISI. SRISA students may take up to 1 course through an external partner.
