Description

PHYSICS 141 is a two-hour weekly laboratory designed to accompany PHYSICS 140. Students make observations, do simulations, analyze their data and compare their results to predictions based on theory. The course material is focused on understanding the principles of classical mechanics.

First Lab Policy:

Attendance for the first lab is mandatory. If you have an extenuating circumstance, you must communicate with your lab instructor prior to the start of the first lab. Students who do not attend the first lab without contacting the lab instructor in advance will be dropped from their section.

Make-Up Lab Policy:

Lab attendance is mandatory. Make-ups are given only in rare cases for specific, documented reasons. These include medical reasons, family emergencies, religious holidays, and official University of Michigan sponsored events. Except for emergency situations, permission for make-ups need to be obtained prior to the event. Note that students who have to do a make-up lab must often work alone and generally do worse than those who attend the regular class session. Therefore, students should choose a lab section with the least number of predetermined conflicts, preferably none.

Course Requirements:

Students are graded on in-class performance and laboratory reports submitted at the end of each lab period. Students are expected to complete 10 experiments in this course.

Intended Audience:

This laboratory is intended for students interested in the physics and engineering who are taking the PHYSICS 140/240-course sequence.

Class Format:

One two-hour period of laboratory works each week. There are eight stations in the classroom, and students work in groups of three.
