Goal of the courseThe objective of this laboratory is to familiarize second year physics students to basic concepts of electricity and magnetism, using a series of simple experiments. Students must have studied in advance the theory behind each experiment. Attendance to all experiments is compulsory for a successful completion of the coirse
SyllabusThe following experiments are performed by all students:
Basic measurements of direct current - Using an oscilloscope - RC circuits - RL circuits - RLC circuits - Measurements of R, C, and L, using a bridge - Filters and parallel resonance RL - Electrolysis RLC - Magnetic field of a linear and circular conductor - Magnetic field of a solenoid - Measurement of the force between the plates of a capacitor.
