Experimental Physics is a fundamental subject to learn by all under graduate students of science and engineering. There is no books available on this subject, which will cover all the experiments discussed in this course. So the video course on Experimental Physics in teaching form will be easily understandable to students and NPTEL is the suitable platform to spread over the distant students not only the knowledge but also the evaluation of the knowledge providing the certificate. Of course, the online video course on Experimental Physics will definitely compensate the crisis of specialized teacher of this subject in many colleges in our country.
INTENDED AUDIENCE : B. Sc in Physics / all science,All Engineering Students/Faculty.PREREQUISITES : Nil
