I will teach Experimental Physics in this course. I have designed this course in three modules:
(I) Experimental Physics-I : Experiments on Mechanics, General properties of matter, Thermal properties of matter, Sound, Electricity and magnetism.
(II) Experimental Physics-II : Experiments on Optics andQuantumPhysics .
(III) Experimental Physics-III : Experiments on Solid state physics and Modern Physics.
Each module is of 30 hours course. Module-I was run in Jan-Apr 2019 and module-II was run in July-Oct 2019. At present we will discuss only module-III in Jan-Apr 2020.
This course is not only suitable for undergraduate students of physics, rather it is compulsory for all undergraduate students of science, engineering and technology , who have to deal with instruments in any point of time during their career and profession. This course will make you understand the working principle of many common devices through their applications in different experiments with particular aims.
Also this course will have positive feedback for the national level examinations like GATE, NET, JAM and JEST conducted by IIT, UGC/CSIR, IIT and SERB, respectively.
INTENDED AUDIENCE : B. Sc in Physics / all science BE/BTech in all Engineering and Technology
