This site contains information about the lab work you will undertake for the module Laboratory Skills and Electronics - both PHYS2641 and PHYS3681.
The Laboratory Skills and Electronics module is assessed through a combination of lab reports, practical assessments, and computing problems. The details, timescales and other information such as lab allocation lists can be found on DUO under Laboratory Skills and Electronics > Course Documents.
You can find help, guides and other information regarding equipment, data analysis, report writing, Python and more in the Skills section.
Measurements and their Uncertainties by Hughes and Hase, is required reading for this module. It begins at a level accessible for first year undergraduate physics but goes up to research level. Its compact size makes it easy to carry to the laboratory on a regular basis. Familiarity with chapters 1-5 is assumed for this module.
