Summary
Students will be acquainted with basic procedures for measurement of labotaror tasks and their processing.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Summarize the basic principles of the theory of physical measurements and measurement errors and uncertainties. Describe and explain the physical laws that underlie the various methods of measurement. Apply the methods of measurement and the theory of measurement errors and uncertainties during the practical evaluation of physical quantities in mechanics and thermodynamics
Course Contents
The subject follows the theoretical course of Physics I and is aimed at mechanics and thermodynamics.
1. Introduction to the devices used in the laboratory, safety precautions and to the methodology of processing of the particular experimental tasks.
2. Measurement of moment of inertia of a flywheel using the equation of motion
3. Measurement of radius of inertia of a physical pendulum
4. Measurement of the acceleration of gravity from the period of oscillations of a mathematical pendulum
5. Measurement of shear modulus from the oscillation period of a torsion pendulum
6. Measurement of surface tension of the liquid from the capillary elevation and by a lying drop method
7. Measurement of dynamic viscosity of liquids in Stokes viscometer
8. Measuring the speed of sound from the phase delay in the acoustic pipe
9. Measurement of a frequency of a slightly out of tune tunning fork using the beats
10. Measurement of Poisson's ratio by Clement-Desormes method
